There's A FUNGUS Among Us
Trojans are for DICKS!
First let me apologize for yesterday but once I explain , you will completely understand. I spent the entire day, and I mean the entire day from 7:30 AM to 5:30 Pm working to fix a serious problem on my computer. The thing is, I was not only infected with about 30-40 different Trojan viruses, it somehow seeped into my personal banking and my business banking. That's some big sh*t.
Thank God I was still able to do business yesterday. But what started out as an item on my checking account, turned into an all day dealing with Tech support for my business. I do have to say that Yash (my Intuit Tech support guy in New Delhi) and I bonded, and he was extremely helpful, considering we were on the phone for the better part of 3.5 hours.
Long story short, this has been happening to me quite a bit recently. In Feb, I noticed fraud on my business merchant account which was promptly cleared up, then in late March, more fraud with my business American Express. I changed passwords, got new account numbers and was issued new cards etc., this time it was personal.
So I gotta ask why? What am I doing here?
My computer guy, (not from New Delhi) who ended up spending 3 hours with me and my computer yesterday told me that these "Trojan viruses" lay in wait in all kinds of places like Facebook, email accounts like Gmail and AOL and wherever else you can think of. There are barely a click away. The work computer, which is our cash register, is used by the entire staff so it is hard to police. He said the only solution is to ask that they not use the computer for anything other than the business at hand.
Today I am so afraid to do anything on this computer...for fear that even Googling the word Trojan will bring up Lord knows what.
Trojans are truly best served doing what they do best and forgive me for being blunt here..Disposing of wasted sperm.
