Virus alert!

The NSA has put viruses on 50-thousand computers, according to one report.

NRC, a news site or something in the Netherlands, reports that Edward Snowden's documents said that the NSA put malware on 50-thousand computers worldwide. Floor Boon -- that's the reporter's name; and if you can't trust Floor Boon, who can you trust? -- writes that the NSA has complete control over the malware:
The malware can be controlled remotely and be turned on and off at will. The "implants" act as digital ‘sleeper cells’ that can be activated with a single push of a button. According to the Washington Post, the NSA has been carrying out this type of cyber operation since 1998.
Now, who would the NSA target?

Well, I don't think I have anything to worry about. It's not like the NSA would put any malware on my computer or anything.

Sure, I'm a conservative, and don't think much of them stepping on the liberties of Americans, but they wouldn't use that as an excuse to FLUINEUGFPSE. DSFLJIE. JDJF JDIFO UEWRFDPR GDW9E7TS HEG0&RE% 51 62 61 6D 61 20 63 61 6E 20 6B 69 73 73 20 6D 79 20 61 73 73 21 101010

  1. Nothing to see here...nothing to see...move along....move along now...

    Dont know what the problem is ...its not like our government would ever plant stuff on peoples computers that could implicate them as criminals. And they certainly would never do that to its political "opponents." Its not like the mere existence of certain types of files on your computer could get you labeled a pedophile and incarcerated, could get you labeled a terrorist and incarcerated.....etc. etc.

    Nothing to see here.....nothing to see...move along....move along.....

  2. Am I going to be the first nerd to admit that I instantly recognized the last part as hex-coded ASCII and looked it up to see what it said? So be it.

  4. "50,000 computer networks"

    So, possibly hundreds of thousands of computers, or more.

    But not mine - because my systems are run by advanced, quantum tristate devices using True, False and Maybe!
