The Liar, The Virus, and The Porn Sites

Wednesday, October 5, 2005
Posted in: Uncategorized

We’ve got a computer set up in the dining room that isn’t used very often, but every now and then, if I can’t be arsed taking my laptop out, I’ll use it.

Well, I logged onto it last night to check to see if we had any random mail, and as per usual, I ran a virus scan first.

There were four threats found. Upon further investigation, I discovered that the threats were files called Dialer DC16 and DC17(or something like that, I forget the exact name).

Basically, what happens with the type of dialer that we’d got, is that everytime you go online, the dialer automatically dials premium rate porn telephone numbers all over the world.

As you can guess, I was absolutely horrified, as I mentally calculated how much money we would have to pay to our telephone company.

I went onto the Symantec website to check where the virus originated from, and apparently, we’d have had to go onto a porn site, and downloaded something for it to be installed on the computer.

I was about to scream at Paul, when I realised that, it couldn’t have been him because he hadn’t used the machine since we’d come back.

I then remembered that my youngest brother had been looking after the house, so I called him.

Me: Have you been surfing on porn sites on the computer downstairs?
Him: No!
Me: I wont be mad if you have, just tell me if you did.
Him: I haven’t.
Me: There’s a virus on the computer, and apparently, the only way I could have got it, is if we’d been downloading shit from porn sites.
Him: It wasn’t me!
Me: I wont be mad I promise
Him: I went on some music websites that’s all!
Me: I really don’t mind, just tell me the truth.
Him: I’m telling you, it wasn’t me!
Me: Are you telling me that it was your sister then?
Him: *mumbles* I don’t know
Me: I’ll be really mad if I find out later that it was you, and that you lied to me:
Him: silence
Me: Alastair’s coming round, and he’ll be checking to see which porn sites were accessed and when.
Him: Silence
Me: I’ll know if it was you
Him: Silence
Me: So were you checking out porn sites on the PC whilst we were gone?
Him: Silence
Me: I’m waiting:
Him: *whisper* Yes.
Me: What was that?
Him: *a bit louder * yes I did.
Me: See, that wasn’t so hard was it?
Him: S’pose not
Me: SO DON’T FUCKING LIE TO ME AGAIN!
*slams phone down*

When I checked the list of sites he’d been on, they were numerous. I’ve never heard of Hood Hunters, or Ghetto Love, and I’ve no intention of going onto the websites to check them out either. Paul on the other hand, will probably investigate in the name of research. Sigh.

With the help of Symantec, I managed to get rid of the viruses. Apparently, because we were on broadband instead of a dial-up, it was unable to dial out to any of the porn sites. Thank f*ck for that.

Paul’s comment was something along the lines of “Boys will be boys”.

My reply to him was “He’s not a boy, he’s my brother”

I guess it’ll be a while before he comes round to visit. He’s probably living in fear that I’ll tell my mum. Idiot.

    Hood Hunters? Ghetto Love? ROTFLMAO!! Aww come on Karen, you have to see the hilarity in that. While it wasn’t cool that he lied about it and gave your computer a virus, I have to chuckle at the sites he was visiting. I once saw a poor add called Squirters are Us. Pretty catchy isn’t it?

    ROFLMAO! Your poor brother! I imagine he was absolutely mortified by your knowing that he looked at porn. I always knew my brother had pornographic stuff, but it was just one of those things that was never mentioned, it was just too icky!

    LOL, Karen, that’s like the EXACT conversation I’ve had with my brother. Only mine keeps denying it to the bitter end. I log on, look at the history folder and see all those porn sites, and he still denies it, even if he’s the only one who’s been at the computer that day.

    That was great. I have busted my younger brother so many times about this exact thing. I told my parents. They said put a lock on my door. I felt I shouldn’t have to.

    My dad finally cracked down on him because he got a $2,000 phone bill. He exploded and I had the best laugh.

    Boy – does that sound familiar. I had the same problem with my oldest son. He was going on some nasty sites (which he denied of course) and my computer got so infected whatever website I visited took me to mulitple – multiple pop up porn sites -POP,POP,POP,POP,POP. When he denied it, I told him I could find out anywhere. He finally confessed and I told him if he ever did that again on MY computer, I would fix it so he could never get on it again. He stopped thank goodness.

    Hey, I’m so relieved to hear other people have brothers, or like me, a son who have done this! What a relief!

    ROFLMAO!!! Bloody hilarious. Your bruv probably won’t be able to look you in the eye for a little while.

    Kinda reminds me about the time when my brother was housesitting for us and he accidently set the alarm off when he came in.

    Because he forgot the alarm code to shut it off, the police came round and they came in the house to look round.

    What did they find on the kitchen table? A little bag of ganja.

    He told me about it and I jumped on him “I hope you haven’t been smoking that in our house!” He hadn’t, but I haven’t told dh about though, because he’d absolutely freak!

    My teenage son did something similar once while we were away for a weekend. You could almost hear the groans from the computer for all the contamination of adware. Arggh! My only consolation- it was only teen “pen pal” sites. Boys will be boys, I guess.

    Last summer my sister’s son snuck into my apartment to “watch TV”. I came home from work to turn on my computer, but for some reason it didn’t turn on. After a little investigation (because you pretty much have to spy for the FBI to be in my family) I found out he had been on my computer playing “games”….Right, more like the left handed kind of games. Then a few weeks later I was cleaning out junk on my parents computer and noticed a string of porn sites. Did a little more investigation and found which screen name all the porn belonged to. Lo and behold, my sisters porn freak 15 year old son. Suprise Suprise.lol
