Mind 'ow you search...

My colleague Robert Hensing linked to an interesting and scary article about "evil" results in search engine queries being used to infect people's machines.

Ways to stay safe(r):
  • Use Vista on a 64-bit machine with hardware DEP enabled, and UAC enabled
  • Run as a normal user (not an admin)
  • Don't install anything when a website prompts you, unless you know and trust the website, are really are sure it's something you need, and it's signed by a trusted publisher.
  • Uninstall Quicktime :)
