The Gorse Fox is feeling smug. The "virus" warning received yesterday that had made him suspicious was clearly a scam to try and get the Gorse Fox to download some software that would have compromised his system.
He has selected a Sophos package and installed that. That has completed a full scan of the system and no threats were detected, no malware, and no viruses. The Gorse Fox is not surprised as he is very cautious and has a well protected system. These things do sew the seed of doubt and it's nice to be proved right.
