To own a PC is to be a potential victim. A potential victim of phishers, trying to steal your credit card information through online scams. A potential victim of malware writers, trying to hijack your browser or record your every keystroke. A potential victim of Trojan writers, virus writers and more.
I’m researching a book about malware, spyware, and other pests, and if you’ve been victimized, I’d like to hear your war story. If you’ve found your PC filled with spyware, if you’ve inadvertently fallen for a phishing scam, or if you’ve been attacked in any other way, let me know. I’d like all the gory details - how you got the pest, what it did to your PC, and how you killed the beast.
Post some basic details here for the world to see, but send me email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll use the most relevant war stories in my book.
So you may have been a victim, but here’s your chance to help others avoid what you went through.
Tell me your war story. Get it off your chest — you’ll feel better.
