    Hoaxes

    I find this nice little compiled list of hoaxes on Symantec. Most of these are through e-mails. I posted this because I've seen alot of threads in here about people getting done in by fake warnings, etc. Hope this helps.

    It never ceases to amaze me what people will believe in print, or any other source of info they regard as "infallible".

    Nice list...would almost be funny if it weren't so necessary.

    Many thanks, Shag. I've been wondering where I could acquire such an item for a while now.
