@yinettesys Hah. And of course I’ve now given you some “new” malware to play with. Enjoy.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to yinettesys

@SpawnRich Ta for that, that’s what I was thinking. I posted the full URL earlier, should you care. But hey your telemetry has it anyway.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SpawnRich

@yinettesys All the UA selections are for Windows.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to yinettesys

Hang on, @yinettesys, urlquery.net sends ‘dose browser strings. I’d have sent OS X browser strings. I may have got something else.

via Janetter for Mac

They do geolocate though. I got Australian imagery (ACMA, AFP etc), urlquery.net got European imagery.

via Janetter for Mac

At this stage, I thank the laziness of those Russian criminals, ‘cos they could’ve loaded that with malware that’d hit OS X.

via Janetter for Mac

Meanwhile, as @SpawnRich points out, there’s free Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac at sophos.com/en-us/products… … tho he IS biased.

via Janetter for Mac

Yep, @yinettesys, which means I’d have been pwned if I’d been running Windows, but OS X shrugged it off and I just got the scareware screen.

via Janetter for Mac

@SpawnRich Ah, I was wondering whether you were up yet. The evidence so far is that I was just scareware’d, yes?

via Janetter for Mac

I’m somewhat sure that if all my “PC DATA” was being encrypted there’d be some hard drive activity. That’s all BS. But have I been pwned?

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen Sure. I can tell you about the trauma of force-quit and re-starting the browser. The world needs to hear my story.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

Meanwhile, can someone who knows @rod_benson personally call him and tell him his Twitters have been pwned.

via Janetter for Mac

As I saved the page, Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac detected it as Troj/Ransom-AFD and claims the threat can be “cleaned up”. So there’s that.

via Janetter for Mac

OK, I’m 99% sure that was a force-quit Chrome job ($100 ransom), but how do I now ensure it’s not the 1% where OS X was Blackhole’d?
