Windows 7: Have you heard of the Happy Hour virus?

Have you heard of the Happy Hour virus?

Quote:
Vigilant Naked Security reader Betty Kann has alerted us to an online service that she felt security-conscious sysadmins ought to be made aware of.

We thought so too, but ended up on the horns of a "disclosurelemma."

That's where warning administrators in case their users access the service and thus trivialise computer security might cause users to access the service and thus trivialise computer security.

Created by an advertising agency in Boulder, Colorado, the website, called Happy Hour Virus, lets you deliberately simulate a security problem in order to leave work early.

Anybody that would do this on a computer that doesn't belong to them would not be my friend or work for me very long.

It's just a browser simulating a BSOD or monitor or kernal problem, you press esc to exit.
