How NOT to be Popular
"You won't be very popular if you're sending viruses," my new and rather upset co-worker admonished me the other day, sounding like a 1950s etiquette pamphlet on how to win friends and influence people.
She had used her company-issued computer to send me a file to edit via the company-run intranet. I edited that file on my company-issued computer and sent it back.
And somehow a virus wormed its way into the file. I guess someone had to take the blame.
As a contractor, the only thing I usually bring to work is my virus-free self (and maybe my lunch)...so how was this my fault?
