    I read an article somewhere I forget that said that a new way to pass adware, spyware and even viruses was through streaming video on the internet. Anyone know where I can locate that article again?

    I'm interested too. When I connect to a video via the internet, when it says 'connecting' does it mean that I'm connecting to a file and or a virus or just the video stream?

    Normally,it would connect you to the video stream,but if you're downloading videos from porn sites...
    it might be downloading a virus onto your computer.

    Careful people!
