The Virus is in the Button. Wait! What?

The Virus is in the Button. Wait! What?

October 30, 2014

Working in a building full of technology wizards has its advantages.

Yesterday, I was on Facebook. I saw a link to a news story. The link was sent by another, trustworthy co-worker. The story was from a well-known television station, so I clicked on the link. My phone immediately alerted me that I now have a virus on my phone. It told me to click on this red button to start the process to remove the virus. So, I asked the wizards. Do I click on this button? I received a resounding, “NO!” Apparently, that is how you get the virus. Lesson learned. Just use your back button or turn your phone off and back on.

Thank you, O Wonderful Wizards!
