    Interesting? Same guy interviewed here?

    He has FireFox installed on his machine. I wonder which browser he uses most often.

    Thank <applicable higher power>!  I will make everyone I talk to about how a virus infected their computer watch this video.  So glad to see that someone else out there still makes the distinction between virii, worms, and trojans!

  • Great question and a great answer.  I'll point people here now when they ask me the difference.
