A 2 for 1 Special – Mac Has A Virus / Malware – Sony Knocked Down A Few Pegs….What A Wonderful Life!

Posted by foreualways on May 26, 2011

I’m seeing all over the internet (link 1, link 2, link 3, link 4please note that moving your cursor over the link without clicking it will show the address that the link goes to at the bottom of the browser) that the Macs are not as invincible as they once claimed. Yes, I know that Window based pcs have way more virus / malware, etc. Then the Apple has apps, but Macs are NOT suppose to get anything like this! I figured it was more likely that the Rapture would come to fruitation (guess I am one of the stupid people) before I would be reading that Macs have a situation such as that, let alone that Apple refused to help any of them and order all employees do not help as well.

They do offer help at this link —> http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4650.

I find these following screen captures from Apple website to be amusing at this point!

Here 2 very interesting links. Apple Mac malware: A short history (1982-2010) and the other is Apple malware evolved – No password required

Sony: Hackers will cost company over $170 million

That a lot of money to me, but to these large companies that what pocket change. So who do you think is going to cover that cost?

Sony offer some free games (that should make up for their HUGE boo boo).
If you own a PS3, you get the following games:

  • Dead Nation
  • inFAMOUS
  • LittleBigPlanet
  • Super Stardust HD
  • Wipeout HD + Fury

Now if you own a PSP, then the following is your prize for staying with them or coming back. Depending on how you look at:

  • LittleBigPlanet (PSP)
  • ModNation Racers
  • Pursuit Force
  • Killzone Liberation

Please note that while you can keep the games mentioned above forever, they will only be available for 30 days. They are offering some other goodies that can be found at their Playstation.Blog.

While some of you will of course accept what they offer, and while not trying to judge any of you. I have to wonder, “Does it really make up for what happened especially it your privacy was stolen?”

I would like to note that while they (Sony) are thanking the publishing and developing partners, because without them they couldn’t have created such a compelling package without them! Well I feel it only fair to thank the hackers as well because let be honest without them hacker Sony to begin with this free package of goodies would not be available to begin with!!!

I was going to start the title of this post out with a 3 for 1 Special and include a bit about the Rapture, but I feel my friend Jeff, has covered it here, Writing On Judgment Day. Beside 2 for 1 Special sounds better to me….

Thanks for Stopping By
