PSA: Skype virus locks your computer, demands payment
If you get a message from a Skype contact that looks like this:
DO NOT CLICK THE LINK. It’s ransomware that will lock your computer up, accusing you of possession of child pornography, and threaten to alert the authorities unless a $200 payment is made. And then pass the link along to all your Skype contacts.
SERIOUSLY, DON’T CLICK IT.
If you’ve already been infected, or if you know someone who has, instructions for removing the virus are under the cut.
PLEASE PLEASE SPREAD THIS
If you live in North Texas (THAT’S YOU MY DALLAS PEOPLE), you are being advised to STAY INSIDE tonight and close your windows. Strong northern winds are blowing right now in Texas, and there are public safety concerns for fumes from the fertilizer plant. There is no knowledge about the exact quality of the air, but there is the possibility that hazardous chemicals are present.
No they are not evacuating West Texas
They are evacuating the town of West, Texas
It is a small town between Waco and Hillsboro on I-35
It is not the entire western portion of the state
On that note, do not go south past the 35 juncture or north past Elm Mott
Take HWY 22 through to I-35 East. Do not take I-35 past Waco (northbound) or Hillsboro (southbound).
THE NEWS JUST SAID IF U LIVE IN BOSTON THEN PLEASE VISIT A HOSPITAL AND ASK IF THEY NEED A BLOOD DONOR THEY ARE DESPERATE 18+ SPREADTHEWORD
IMPORTANT: My former roommate in Boston just called MGH and they said that they have enough blood on hand for the tragedy today, but will need blood in the coming week to replenish. Please don’t rush to the area yet, as it’s more imperative that the police continue scanning the area for potential threats.
However, MGH is taking blood donation walk-ins beginning tomorrow at 7 AM. That would be the time to go donate.
