I'm not scared enough to accept your scareware

from here

How far ahead of the curve would we be if malware couldn't scare people into making rash decisions? Unfortunately the scareware market and the legitimate anti-malware market feed off of each other (anti-malware vendors sow the fear that scareware makers capitalize on and scareware makers sow the malware that anti-malware vendors capitalize on) and it's hard to break out of a feedback loop when there's money involved.
