thats a load of bull lol

if theyve known about it since 2006 surely like the mega programmers and virus makers and hackers could have come up with a solution to it instead of just saying , watch were you link.

this site gets a lot of visitors but im not exactly scared of getting the sinowal virus from it

They need to educate as well as report. Most people have no ideas of the anatomy of a virus!?
