Badware stories

If you have accidentally downloaded malware through Facebook or other web sites, then you now have the opportunity to share your story with other people on StopBadware.org.

If you’ve never had a bad experience, then check out some of the stories posted by other people. They can help you find new ways to protect your computer and privacy.

And before you get too smug about never contracting a virus, you might want to read through some of the stories to help you decide whether you really aren’t infected. Many of the people who share their stores on StopBadware didn’t know that anything was wrong for quite some time after accidentally downloaded malware.

Remember, really good hackers make virus and worms that work behind the scenes. You don’t even know that they are there until, weeks later, your system seizes up on itself and you get the infamous blue screen of death. Or, even worse, you find fraudulent charges on your credit card.
