The _former_ parent company of my company just sent a little package in the mail, labeled "Benefits". In some confusion, I open it to find a thumb drive that contains a single 2.9mb PDF.
Not only have they failed to realize that I don't still work for them, but I am even more baffled that somebody decided that this was the best way to distribute a small document out to however many thousand people.
@rafial So all we have to do to get a virus on your system is put a former employer's address in the return corner? Good to know!
@mdhughes I did use my USB firewall to inspect it. I'm not without caution.
@rafial "Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of thumb drives"?
@rafial That's the benefit, a free thumbdrive
@rockario it's a ~64MB~ thumb drive which is freaking me out because I didn't even know they _made_ flash RAM that small anymore.
@rafial people used to sending documents via email trying hard to remember how people used to do this in the distant past… 😂
