Silicon Valley - (Ass Mess)): A wizard new cyber tool which scans data files for the dreaded gum disease e-virus has been hailed a success after its launch by AppleCore Scambusters. The high-tech phishing philter tracks down bona-fide looking electronic mail claiming to originate from a user's dentist that warns a missed hygenist's appointment will incur a $100 penalty unless immediate contact is made to confirm new arrangements via a click of the mouse.
This activates the dreaded gyngivitis e-virus which downloads all personal information before infecting the hard-drive with images of hideously amateurish attempts at
corrective orthodontic treatment for chronic gum disease.
But the new phishing philter busts this latest cybercrime scam whose victims are wooed by a sense of overwhelming guilt and dentophobia into falling for a ruse that cleans out their bank accounts, downloads their intimate private correspondence and then blackmails them into paying up ever larger amounts of cash to worthless charitable front companies run by the cash-strapped UK Labour Party.
Readers are warned to beware of cheap imitations.
