as if we don’t have enough to worry about

Hi all.
This is a quick post to say there is another new virus going round.
It is not targeted at the pc market, we are the target in fact.
I refer to articles that have been going round, you can search for this but aparently some joker has it in his head or maybe his non head to make a video saying you can “put a new 3.5 inch jack in your iphone by drilling one”
This is obviously a prank but it fooled many people into destroying their devices.
Youtube is a good source of entertainment but now we have to worry about the fake youtube videos.
The fake vid plays on users wanting something badly in this case the phone jack.
It then gives a solution.
And then it says it works.
Instructions are made simple and straight foreward and then executed.
The payload a dead phone results from this.
What scares me is this is exactly how a scam or any malware or virus works.
There is not any security software for our minds, some of us shouldn’t be that gullable.
If you do fall victum to this malware video you will have to replace your phone, attempting to comment will not garner sympathy from the origional prankster either just more sarchasm.
While most of us were wised up to this obvious joke a lot were not.over 8 million listened to this.
If we fall for this destructive video then no security software or protection will help us if we are that dumb!
Maybe there are just more dumb people than we will ever know.
It saddens me that this even happens.
On the other side, while there were troubles with office yesterday, a download of a new update package and subsiquent program reconfig on the particular workstation has resulted in no destruction of any files.
