Thanks for the heads up Zen00. I have come across stuff like that online and it can be scary even to someone who has been malware knowledgeable for years. The only part of the article that I have a problem with is the garlic up my sleeves is starting to be a bit uncomfortable.

To be honest, all I knew about Twighlight is that the lead actor is nothing more than a hairstyle with a fixed expression.

But since it's so popular, it's unsurprising fans are being targeted.

Beware the dreaded "white list" -- HP is guilty as charged
I don't normally start threads like this. Not all product manufacturers are created equal and some are notably better than others. But what bothers me is when a company makes a very decent product and then in a covert manner, cripples it as a means to gouge/fleece the consumer. I contacted HP...
