Imagine that one day you turn on your phone, your ipad, or your computer and suddenly you see at the first screen an amazing designed page with never seen graphics that tell you everything about an inteligent civilization. Everything like where they come, who they are, how they are, etc, etc.
For a civilization that is advanced 500 or more years it could be too easy to upload something like a virus in every phone, computer or ipad in the world.
By doing this they could change your OS in seconds with the information they want, a civilization so advanced could install in every device that is connected to the internet a very advanced OS to show information about them or also contact them directly.
If I was an alien race that I would like to make public contact to all the people in the world I would choose this method because it is the fastest, safest, and this contact will prepare everyone in the world for a direct contact.
What do you think about this? I bet that a few people have think of this.

And everyone would be upset at their OS being wiped out. Think about it- all your documents would potently be no longer accessible.
