My sister-in-law answered her phone today to find what had to be some sort of hacker on the other end.
“Ma’am, you’ve been downloading infractions that will result in the loss of your computer if we don’t help you. All I need is for you to hit the windows key and type in…”
“WHAT?? Who are you, exactly and why would you know what I download?”
“Because we’re from Microsoft and we know what you download”.
By this time I was on the other line with her, assuring the poor woman that her software IS legal and to get his particulars. She was in something of a tizzy.
When asked for his number so she could verify his identity, he hung up. I told her that if he calls back, tell him to go fark himself. Freaking hacker.
NOW. I want to know what that string would reveal about her computer. She thinks it was RENVTWR but that yields no results in a net search.
Be careful out there!
