Cross Platform Joke

Do you know what is a Joke Programs ?

Joke programs is designed to frighten or embarrass a user — creating a virus like symptoms and causes interruption to people’s work. This is the reason why most security software detects it.

This programs are not malwares and definitely poses no threat to computers. They could be in different file format such as executable binaries like .EXE, office documents like .PPT and web-base. Most known joke programs are limited to Windows OS, but with the spurring popularity of Mac, cross-platform is now a consideration.


Last week in yahoo group somebody asked this question, “Can you access this site http://www.internetisseriousbusiness.com ?” Few minutes later, people started to send their replies and one member said “This is the worst thing I’ve done”.

So, what happened?

Once you visited the site, it will resize your browser window to 640×480 and it will start moving to every corner of your computer screen while playing a music video “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley.

The annoying thing about this website is that it does not allow user to change the url link or close the window and everytime the user attempt to do so, it will display a message box with the song lyrics on it. So, the only way out is to manually terminate the process of your browser. How does that sound to you?

Inspecting the source code of the page, you will see that it does not contain any malicious code that poses threat to its users. Instead, it is just an annoying web-base cross platform joke!

Here is the source code of the page.

Furthermore, searching in Google using the keyword “We’re no strangers to love by Rick” you will find the first result links to another page http://smouch.net/lol that does exactly the same.

Stay away from these sites!
