Flame mail of the year

One of the hazards of blogging and writing about malware is that occasionally, users will Google a piece of malware, find some posting on our website or blog about it, and incorrectly assume that we’re the makers of it.

In this case, a user, Jane, apparently googled WinAntivirusPro, thought that we are the ones who make it and sent us a scathing letter recently. It’s high on profanity, so I have not posted it directly in this blog — instead, it’s linked here. It just goes to show the absolute rage that a piece of malware can create in a user.

Unfortunately, our attempts to convince users that we’re not the developers of this type software often fall on deaf ears.

Ah well.
