Dr Solomon’s anti-fake-virus toolkit?

Some of us remember with affection Dr Solomon’s Antivirus Toolkit. Alan Solomon hasn’t been so active in the AV scene in recent years, but recently he had quite a lot of fun with a support scammer: Technical support scam, with a few ideas that I’m tempted to add to my own anti-scammer toolkit.

Added to the scam page on this site, of course.

Added to the support scam resources page, of course.
