bun-fisher virus

Vote for me and nobody gets infected.
  (+3, -7)
(+3, -7)
  [vote for,
against]

A virus is disguised as a fairly lame vote-fishing Halfbakery idea about a virus (strictly, a trojan horse). The vote _against_ link has been rewired to trigger malicious code. The vote _for_ link removes the malicious code. Failure to click on either link causes the virus to lurk and wreak havoc later.

       The only known antidote is to change your vote immediately and then reformat your hard drive.
