      @chmod 777 :D And answers to most of the questions were found by hovering over the image and looking at the 'tooltip'. :D

  • Andy gets a 9/10

    You missed question 1 on your own quiz. If your computer was infected, why would they popup a messagebox titled "Internet Explorer". Software already installed on the computer would have control over the messagebox title. When it says IE, it isn't installed and just a javascript popup.

    • Question 1

      There wasn't a right answer to this question. Don't worry, it's just a hoax is not correct. Clicking anyplace on such a popup could install malware on your computer. When these fake av messages show up I encourage users to do a Ctrl-Alt-Del and shut down all of IExplore, or to just turn your computer off. There is no safe place to click to get rid of this message.

        @boomchuck1 totally correct. the right answer is "b" - get help, 'cuz whatever choice you make, you're toast. on this crap, i start up the task manager and zap the ie window(s) where this is coming from.

        You are totally right, ignoring that requester as stated in answer C is dangerous and clicking on it there is a high probability you will get infected because your security software might not be up to date or does not recognize it as its new and not been added to a definition database yet. I like to use the NoScript plugin in Firefox to try to avoid those type of fake requesters from popping up in the first place. If I do see one of those pop up after I enable scripts on a page I just simply disable scripts again on the page and it kills the script and reloads the page. I can then safely close the original website page that launched the script displaying the fake!

    I still think the answer is b. I seen the popup and ignored it; still I got the malware.

      I would agree. If I tell user don't worry, they would probably click on either "no" or the "X" which will still infect your system.

      • The X Will Infect Your System?

        @TBone2k <br>It wouldn't on the browsers I use. It might not get you away from the site either, but it wouldn't infect you. To get away without being infected you might have to turn off JavaScript or kill your browser.

        Edit: That's assuming of course that this is a real dialog box and not a hyperlinked image masquerading as a dialog box, but the pointer should give that away.

    Although possible, it is unlikely Disney would misspell dream in the subject line. Although, if Mickey had been partying with Tinkerbell just before composing this email .....

    I am not Photoshopping my baby pictures, but I did get a 9 out of 10. I honestly believe that in question 1 if you were to see that, then you have a problem.

    • RE: Quiz: Can you believe what you see?

      @Rick_K <br>I've seen that that same pop up several times... it was never a problem unless you hit OK and went to their website and they try to sell you services to fix the fake problem.<br><br>The funny thing is, I've seen the pop up before on a Mac, and just for the heck of it I hit OK, and it did some fake looking virus scan thing that looks like Windows and said I had some viruses... I could pay them to fix the problem... was quite funny since it was very obvious to me it was a fake scan.

      The main problem you have if you see that pop up... is if your running IE :-P
