Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Google, Internet

Google BlogGoogle Blogger, beware! Fake entries containing links to downloads can infect your Windows run PC. Computers that catch the virus are checked for saleable data or used as carriers. The links began in January by hackers dubbed “Storm Trojans” and may actually been have set up for allowing others to view e-mail entries on their Blogger Journals. Here are some of the storm worm subject lines:

  • are you kidding me? lol
  • Dude dont send that stuff to my home email…
  • Dude your gonna get caught, lol

  • I cant belive you did this
  • LMAO, your crazy man
  • LOL, dude what are you doing

The site has received so much publicity that the server has gone down several times but it seems to be stabilized now. If you would like to add your own virtual comments about someone you loved or would like details of its “members,” we suggest you do so remembering that we believe the viewpoint is a tribute to those deceased.
