If You're Blaming Computer Problems on a Virus, You're Probably Wrong

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Next time a computer in your office is broken, chances are someone will blame it on a virus. But let's face it, most computer problems don't stem from viruses; they stem from dumb people.

Of course, it's easier to blame something than it is to understand a problem. That's natural; we all look for scapegoats to make ourselves feel better. It'd just be nice if people learned how to solve their problems rather than blaming them on something else they don't understand. [XKCD]
