Oh Sh*t: New Viruses Download Child Porn Onto Your Computer

Getting a virus that uses your computer to send itself, and spam, out without your knowledge is bad. Getting a virus that hides kiddie porn on your computer is much, much worse.

Apparently, pedophiles have started using viruses to hide their vile stash on strangers computers. And guess what? Nobody believes that it was a virus that put them there when those pictures are found.

People have ended up going to jail because the exams that courts do on your computer are so expensive, judges don't like paying for them. And people have gone broke clearing their names.

The moral of the story? Use virus-protection software, and don't go to shady sites on the web. Because, yikes. [ABCNews]
