It should. So you keep your antivirus/anti-malware stuff updated and don't just click away everywhere. That is the reason for posting. If it had been FF I'd post it just as well...

And that is why, mon fereds when I took my brother's laptop HDDs to one of my friends (to salvage the data), he found 5+ viruses (virii?).... each HDD. And he wondered why his lappies were so slow, in spite of having ~2GB procys.

He saw a text box, and clicked away without reading.
