If you got here because you are a regular follower of the Norman Blogs, Norman Security Advisories or any of the Norman Social Networking Links, of course you are not to blame. It is sensible to stay educated.

The people that try to take over your system will use any means of social engineering, to persuade you try actually get you to download their bad programs onto your system. Often they are challenging as they “contain” the solution for a game you have problems with, promises you to get rid of all system problem (by actually introducing a few), telling you the interesting footage of a naked celebrity can only be seen using the special codec that has remarkable functionality (if you can call spyware that way), unique information on recent events in the world history can only be seen using the special codec that has remarkable functionality (again if you can call spyware that way), etc.
How often did you fall for this? Aha…
And how often do you think your fellow humans have fallen for it? Indeed… Too many people…
That is why we these messages come to you shortly after new events hit the world theater of news. Be careful, be sensible. If footage it claims to be able to show is that intriguing and world-news, you can bet your local news on television will show that as well, without the risk of your system being taken over.
To protect yourself against these “opportunities” you will need proper protection. If you want to learn more about that, please click on the above picture. Since you are still reading I can tell you it leads to something harmless, educational and useful!
