Cash is Good!

I have taken a part-time job, and it's definitely affecting my blogging time. I'll continue to post here as I am able.

Watch out for GreenAV_install.exe

I received a popup telling me that I had 14 files infected with a virus. It asked me to download and install GreenAV_install.exe. I managed to check on this file despite the difficulty of working around the popup box. Here is what I found.

This appears to be a totally fake virus scam. There are messages posted on all sorts of boards, but very little definitive information. But you certainly do NOT want to download this file, no matter how official the virus check page looks.

It seems to be showing up mostly to FireFox users, but it doesn't seem to matter very much what you are doing. You may see the popup appear at any time. DO NOT download the GreenAV_install.exe file.

See Mozilla Forum

First of all, do you mean Ad income for September 17 and not July?

Second, I see your income does not include the CMF Ads?

Hi Plin- Whoops! Yes, I just changed it to July. Thanks

I'm never going to cash out any CMF income. I just roll it back into ads. Therefore I don't bother to report it. I explained this once long ago, but of course, those earlier posts have scrolled away.

Thanks for stopping by!
