Liberal Arts Virus
You know how virus emails always have a subject line that's suppose to be appealing enough to make you click on the attachment? I received a virus email today that must be trying to trap all English grad students into computer chaos. Here was the message:
Subject: Beckett English
Hi! How are you?
I send you this file in order to have your advice
See you later. Thanks
And there was a virus attached. Unbelievable. Are there actually a bevy of duped English profs out there right now? Is there a way to "target" a virus to a certain demographic? Was the author a student seeking revenge for getting a bad grade on his Waiting For Godot paper? What a crazy world this is.
UPDATE: Apparently, this virus is widespread. This page says "The subject of the email is random." Whatever. At any rate, Beckett would have loved it.
