OK tinfoil hatters, something I've noticed the past couple of days. There's been a weird icon appearing on the pull down menu on my laptop when I'm
surfing the Web. It appears to be the notification for the RSS feed for the government's "information" website. What's weird is that it's the
first and only RSS notification that I've ever seen, and it appears to have embedded itself in my computer. Every few minutes, regardless of the site
I'm on, it shows up, beckoning me to click on it and get news and updates from usa.gov. I shut off the notifications, but the fact that it apparently
loaded several files into my computer without my permission is a little disturbing. Yes, all of them appear to simply be notices inviting me to visit
said site, but it's still quite unnerving. Any of you techies out there want to tell me that this is normal and I shouldn't worry?
