  1. Although this scam is intrusive and malicious, at least it is not expensive and/or causing severe damage to personal property. I might even voluntarily look at the pictures if they would like but don’t force me too. Plus others may not feel the same as I do about the pictures and worse yet they could place a different virus using the same method that could be very costly creating havoc beyond your wildest dreams. For these reason this type of activity needs to be prevented
