    I have to share my nude miley cyrus story...

    So my roommate is a computer enthusiast like myself, but he tend to be partial to certain things (operating systems, computer languages, etc.). Anyway, he always (read: daily) finds reasons to make a crack at me using Linux. Well, I was cruising around Digg yesterday and heard about the new miley cyrus photos leaked. They aren't anything to brag about but someone in the comments posted a link to real nude ones. I new what was coming but clicked it anyway. A file called Setup.exe tried to open but nothing happened (ie gotta love linux). My friend made his usual linux bashing comment but this time I went along with it.

    Me: "Dang I can't open it. Linux does blow, I can never open stuff."
    Him: "That's what I keep telling you."
    Me: "Here I'll send you the link."

    couple of minutes pass

    Him: "Son of a B****!! It's a virus!!"

    hahahahahaha, anyone else have an similar stories?

    Sorry, not impressed. I guess your not really that close to your roommate to just try and infect his PC with a virus? Plus, if that PC were now compromised, it could infect others, plus take up bandwidth trying to do so.

    My buddy told me I was stupid for ditching my vista and going with linux. The other day he was on a risque website and downloaded what he thought was just a video, he then found out that it was a nasty worm that ate his system. And the dumb *** couldn't find the restore disk or his backup disk... I installed Ubuntu on his system and he loves it. I make him eat his words whenever I can.

    It wasn't kind if you did it deliberately.
    It wasn't smart if you did it accidently.

    It didn't do any harm. He ran his virus scanner and it picked up the trojan and removed it easily. No lasting effects

    That is truly mean, but most of Windows' security problems come from the fact that its users generally have no sense not to click on any executables from the web. That, and browsing the web as a privileged user. But I guess with Vista's broken super-user system and the fact that runas (XP's sudo) no longer works as it should, it is hopeless.

    Some lesson you taught him in responsible computing.

    I don't see this as a Linux vs. Windows thing. (And it shouldn't turn into one.)

    I just see it as a lesson in downloading responsibly.

    The computer half of the brain says don't click it

    The male half of the brain says it could be real

    It's all about the risks involved
