"I forget who, but some wiseguy stuck a link to site
(www.vivilan.cn - not linkified so Google doesn't mark me as evil)
on his Facebook wall, which reminded me of one reason I love
Firefox (and Linux): security! See, the site is actually a redirect
to another site, which is a redirect to another site which tries to
show you a fake Windows interface telling you your computer has
several viruses and a ton of trojans, and offering a free download
to clean them. Clicking on them gives you a nice program called
"Windows Police Pro", which is a... virus.
"So I downloaded it. And ran it in Wine. And... well, it turns
out Wine emulates Windows well enough to get infected by a Windows
virus. Sort of, at least."
