    When you enlarge an image on google, yahoo, and bing you stay on the search engine. Images can contain malware and other unwanted things but what does it mean by that? To get a unwanted thing on your PC from an image, what do you have to do?

    I know this question may seem a bit weird to ask but if a image is from a malicious site, and you enlarge it, does it still give you the unwanted program or is it safe?

    :)

    New Trojan that Demands a Ransom

    There is a new virus out there discovered by virus hunters known as "Cryzip". The Trojan encrypts your files and then demands a $300 ransom for the decryption password to get your files back. After encrypting the files, the virus leaves a nice step-by-step guide of how to go about paying the ransom off. It's supposedly spread through email Spam, and has successfully evaded anti-virus scanners.
