The World’s Dumbest 409 People

23 May

Free Computer Virus? Sure! Sign me up! That’s exactly what 409 people did who clicked on a Google paid search advertisementwith the creative, “Is your PC virus-free? Get it infected here!”. Fortunately for those 409 people, it wasn’t actually a link that would infect your PC. Instead, it was was an experiment aiming to show these kind of advertising systems can be used for malicious intent, or so said computer specialist Didier Stevens.

I think it was a test to weed out the weakest from the internet herd…or at least it should be. These people are why we still get “increase your size and girth”  and offers to refinance your home emails.  For you 409…and you know who you are….no ISP for you.
