Funny pictures & cartoons to make you smile.

Can you spot a scam?

“As the Christmas spirit gets going we all send each other links to jokes and videos, on Facebook, by email and via Twitter.

Now imagine you arrive at one of these sites and it tells you that you don’t have the latest Flash Player so you can’t watch that funny video, but not to worry click here and you can get your upgraded player immediately.

Not only will this “upgrade” be malware but that malware will go on to send messages to all your friends telling them to go see the “funny” video.”
