What are the chances of a fake antivirus (AV) scammer calling a security vendor? Probably slim, until this week when one such scammer calls Noah Magram, principal software engineer with Sourcefire. After talking to a series of agents for 30 minutes, Noah fires up a virtual machine. The video starts when the scammers get access to his "computer."

(Note: Unfortunately, as Noah points out, scammers often try to use good services with bad intentions. Listen carefully as a few of these services are, indeed, legitimate.)
