I was surfing the Internet news feeds the other day when I came across an article about a website set up to test the stupidity of computer users.
The website offered a free virus to those who didn’t have one. “Is your PC virus free? Get it infected here!” the site asked and there was a clickable link to get the virus. In the six-month campaign over 400 people chose to get a free virus.
There was no actual virus. The whole setup was an experiment to see whether advertising with an overtly malicious intent would work. It appears it will.
