Insidious Obama Virus on the Rise

 

Online computer users beware. The Obama virus has been unleashed. The malware is distributed by email message offering the recipient a link to what is supposed to be a video of President-elect Obama's acceptance speech.

What unsuspecting users really encounter is a link that downloads malware onto the user's computer, stealing sensitive data and turning the victim's computer into a botnet, which is a network of infected computers than send spam.

In addition, the recipients of this particular malware can end up being victims of identity theft and credit card fraud as a result.

The Palin virus. It's not much of a threat because it doesn't know what it's supposed to do and can't seem to propagate outside of Alaska.

Cray0la, honestly. What is your issue? You post comments like this all day, straight up lying to the ShortNews community, then running off like a child to hide from your own comment.

Most people on here know you couldn't name one substantive issue with Barack Obama, and they see you post your lies every day.

Grow up and join the adults conversation, or leave ShortNews.

  there not lies  
 
and i debate all day,

open your eyes and take a look buddy.
im sorry you want short news to stay as liberal as possible but ill stay here and be that prick in your skin forever.

heres some more good insight

Obama: an extraordinary orator, an intelligent campaigner, a gifted politican, and a man destined to be a collosal mediocrity. Anyone with more than 10 brain cells could tell from his Friday press conference that the man has simply no clue how he is going to fix the economy. He''s gone from looking like Mr. Confidence to Mr. Deer-Caught-In-The-Headlights.
He is living proof that there are millions of people who are much better at interviewing for a job than they are at doing the job once they get there.

there already stories out there of obama and is camp needing to downplay expectations, but thats a lie right? higher taxes for americans, thats a lie right? i dont think so, in 2010 the bush tax cuts expire, then the clinton tax rate goes into effect, then what happens is that the middle class pay more taxes because bush cut them in his cuts, so in all reality obama is raising taxes by letting the bush tax cuts expire.

if this is what you call lies and that i cant post a issue with obama, its pretty said that your so blind and only stuck on change.gov.

its only shows you are when obama hasnt even been sworn in yet and you have publically said obama '12, without even knowing what kind of job he will do.
sad.

The election is over, your guy lost big time, so get over it and shut up with the nonsense that you post. You write like English is your third language.

"so in all reality obama is raising taxes by letting the bush tax cuts expire."

thats not raising taxes at all... thats exactly what you said letting bush tax cuts expire... thats not rasing taxes, thats allowing failed policy to expire, while instituting another that lowers taxes for the 95% that got shafted under the bush tax cuts, when they were the ones in need the most... not the people making over a quarter million.

FYI, bushes tax cuts start at about $205,000, so there will be a 45,000 overlap at most when the bush tax cuts expire whcih simply means it will be returning to the normal rate, not the rate the rich got used to under bush.

"if this is what you call lies and that i cant post a issue with obama, its pretty said that your so blind and only stuck on change.gov."

thats not a lie.. nor per se... what it is, is misrepresentation/distortion of facts, DELIBERATELY as you've been proven wrong all these issues many times before and still continue on as if you had facts backing you up.

"its only shows you are when obama hasnt even been sworn in yet and you have publically said obama '12, without even knowing what kind of job he will do.
sad."

lol ironically no more so than you critizing him under the same conditions.

  Virus & names  
 
A good word out on the intereb streets is that haxorz use popular searched names & downloads. Brad Pit for instance is another used one.

@cray0la - yeah, time to accept the facts. I just can'y wait untill my fav. music station stops playing Obama speech music remixs. Obama's killing music! Or at least the people who are mixing him into song. Everything is tainted now! Waaaaa! [runs away nekid]

Latest report I've heard is that the Obama virus is now spreading from high-infection areas in the Northeast and the West Coast into areas it's rarely been spotted, like Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio, Indiana, Colorado, etc.

  Hi CRAYola  
 
Hey, I remember you! It's me Duddya! How are yah padnah! Say, anyone with thoughts on whether the "Obama" virus would have been called the "McCain" virus had he won instead? Or is this just a way to punish the blacks and liberals who "voted for Barack". It's kind of like my theory that people in strongly Republican areas pay less for gas than those in Democratic ones.
