    Malware hidden in images that suggest uses to update flash and other kinds of files. Now only found on Mac's but I am sure they will port that scumware to windows and linux.

    Don't think THAT would ever happen. I bet 90% of the total net bandwidth is taken up by useless images and tweets.....

    No, I'm still vying for your heart. Eventually I would like to be known by the title of "Plaintiff".
