Flashy Fiction - Monday Mischief #amwriting


Monday Mischief

Here's mine:
"I don't remember downloading this app. I wonder what it does...", I said to myself.

I thought I was being smart by running it inside of sandboxie, but little did I know that was what the creator was counting on.

When I ran the app it promptly attacked the sandboxie application, and loaded a virus into my main system. 

The virus said, "See sandboxie is not as safe as you thought it was. And, thank you for the $1000 from your credit card."

Good thing, I wasn't connected to the internet. But, I did have to wipe the hard drive and reinstall my Windows ME.

Let that be a lesson to me, to check everything out thoroughly if I am not sure. Also, never to try something like this on my primary PC (XP, Vista and Windows 7 machines).
