Drive-by Download

"The number of poisoned web sites is increasing. 1 in 1000 web pages are infected with malicious drive-by downloads (source IDG News)." - the AVG install scaretext.

A drive-by download?! Yeah... because comparing software viruses to the most callous and indiscriminant of murderous gangland attacks is REALLY appropriate.

It's just stupid... and yet, that's how anti-virus is marketed. Still, I'd like to find the moron who started that naming convention and throttle him.
