You’ve probably head it before, my computer has a virus again. Running a computer and IT services company in New York’s Capital District, we hear that pretty often.
Recently a woman brought her computer in stating her computer has viruses again. Overhearing the conversation, I instructed one of the techs to perform a forensics investigation on the hard drive because it is not normal for a computer to come back unless something else is going on behind the scenes.
The tech found many traces of pornography website visits on the computer. I placed a call to the woman to review the situation with her. It was a very interesting conversation. She was very polite and insistent that it couldn’t be her teen son or her husband visiting the porn sites and it must be her kindergarten aged child as the child knows how to use Google and can read. Hey, whatever.
We received a call from our client who said over the weekend, a confession was made. It wasn’t the kindergartner. Who’da thought!
