Malware Alert: Donald Trump Virus Fires Your Smartphone Apps

Hackers have written a slew of new viruses named after the leading Presidential candidates.

The viruses are spreading quickly and these are the most popular:

Donald Trump virus – fires all of your smartphone apps and won’t let them re-install

Carly Fiorina virus – merges all of your computer files in to a password-protected HP folder

Marco Rubio virus – translates all of your documents into Spanish and deletes the English version

Hillary Clinton virus – sends out each one of your emails as a press release on PR Newswire

Bernie Sanders virus – defends the Hillary Clinton virus against your anti-virus software and the most dangerous virus of all:

Ben Carson virus – shoots you

What to do?

There’s word that John McAfee will be releasing a new DonationWare app on his campaign website. You’ll be able to make a donation to him and receive a link to download the app from his server in Belize.

Calm down. This is just political humor from a Forbes contributing writer. There are no known Presidential candidate viruses… yet.
