Hopefully people learn to actually filter incoming wireless traffic instead of just sitting there wide open for someone to pick them off.

Being responsible about a network interface applies to anyone not just windows users. Only fools just go "oh thank goodness I'm on linux/os2/osx/dos/etc"

Sounds like a clueless soul that got it anyway, safe mode, edit out the file from regedit, check msconfig and skim for any process that might regenerate it.

Joking aside, this virus is really weak-sauce, as viruses go. All you have to do is search your computer for "miley" and erase any files that turn up...after finding ear plugs.

It's a wonder it wasn't Rick Astley.

Fortunately I think it runs a second process to protect miley. It was a good way to screw with people a few years ago.

Honestly I wish it would have went the whole 9 yards with theme alteration and wallpaper. Nothing says owned like pastel pink. haha

Oh man -- plays Miley and uses a pink and flowery theme for your Windows. That would have to be the funniest virus of all time.

Ya you know, I'm sort of surprised now that no one made a Rick+Roll virus.

I know right. That's pretty much its own virus on youtube. I'm surprised they don't take them down.

I also wonder why it wasn't a RickRoll virus >_>

I wouldn't be surprised if there is one out there like this. Or if the person who did this Miley virus has done, or will do, a Rick Roll version >_>

I wonder if this is a joke though >_> Seems a bit unlikely....Possible though.
