Security Alert:“Badtimes” Virus!

We have some good news about your Yellow Pages Value Package.

Security Alert: “Badtimes” Virus !!

This message contains a security alert issued by Black Knight IT.



If you receive an email entitled “Badtimes”, please delete it IMMEDIATELY.


Do not open it. This email contains a extremely nasty virus that will rewrite your backup files, changing all your active verbs to passive tense and incorporating undetectable misspellings which grossly change the interpretations of key sentences.


It will erase everything on your hard drive, as well as delete anything on disks within 5m of your computer via your Wi-Fi. Your phone will also be tampered with: it will program it to auto-dial it to call only 1900 numbers. Or to endlessly stream meowing cat videos.


If the “Badtimes” message opened in a Windows XP Computer, (although, it shouldn’t happen to you are all informed business owners who are aware that on the 8th of April, Windows XP Support is ending and have swapped to newer operating system…) then things get really bad ….


Under the ageing operating system XP, this virus has the ability to demagnetise the strips on ALL of your credit cards, as well as other electronic devices. It will hide your keys, then will move your car randomly around car parks so you can’t find it. It will give your ex-boy/girlfriend/ex-husband/wife your new phone number. Worst of all, it will also drink ALL your Coffee. And the milk. How will the office function without that !?!




… Don’t panic: we are just playing a little April fool’s joke on you!
The Badtimes Virus doesn’t really exist.

But, Security in your organisation should not be a joke !

If you are still running XP, then you really need to consider a upgrading your OS. Or at the very least, block these machines from connecting to the internet after April 8th. As Microsoft will not be offering any updates or support after this time, any computers still running XP machines after this time will be open for attack.

The team at Black Knight IT are happy to assist with all your Microsoft Licensing and or replacing your devices which will soon be past end of life.
