Knitting's A Little Slow

So I went surfing and ran across this. The story of a substitute teacher in Connecticut who faces up to 40 years in jail for having pornographic pop ups on her computer monitor through no fault of her own, and failing to protect her students from seeing it.

She claims to have been a victim of malicious software infestation. Do I believe her, yup I do because I too have had weird pop ups from time to time. The difference is I'm not a teacher and don't have to worry about protecting anyone from seeing them. I can take the time to just clean up the computer which Julie Amero obviously couldn't do.

Can this happen to you? If you access a computer in a public place anything is possible.
