We Were Invaded Last Night, Warning You Could Be Next!

We Were Invaded Last Night, Warning You Could Be Next!

Seriously we were invaded last night.
Not by aliens, no nothing that would be so much fun. We were invaded by another computer virus!

 

Virus warning sign Virsu detected sign

No we didn't log onto any suspicious looking sites or open one of those weird e-mails or pictures saying we were tagged in a photo. We were simply trying to spice up a blog!

The writing part was all finished and the highlighting done and we thought 'let's add a picture', but we didn't have an appropriate one.
So we searched Google for free pictures. Yep, that's when it happened. We found what we thought was the perfect photo to add, clicked on it and zap, it nailed us. Just like that, no fuss, no muss.

We now every few seconds we get this flash on the screen that says we may have a virus and need to download protection. 
The flash notice is accompanied by a squawking pig sound.  We think this is the viruses way of trying to get us to buy their protection program but no thank you. We will dash over to the store and buy another program to remove theirs.
