Re: My Ubuntu has virus thats blocking virus scanner detector
When I come across these pop-ups my response is "Oh - really!", some times I hit the scan button just to see what it scans and then LMAO.
They usually scan my "C:" drive and my "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32" files etc. and come up with all these .exe and .dll files that are infected with various trojans and worms. Yeah right!
In a morbid way kinda amusing.
Then for $29.95 or some thing close I can purchase the cure ..... and so on.
I then switch on "No-script", because I most-likely switched it off earlier and forgot to switch it back on, and then continue web surfing.
Using U10.04, FF4, and "NoScript" plugin, and of course no "wine" on this system.
DO NOT DO THIS on a Windows system, those fake Virus Scanners are a pain to remove.
Enjoy Linux and happy surfing.
