Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Goatee-bearded crooner George Michael isn't quite the child-and-PC-loving philanthropist The News of the World would like to make him out to be. In their first edition of the New Year, the News of the Screws devoted several inches (that’s column inches) to claims that Michael was donating £4.7 million of his hard earned cash so that he could buy a PC for every single school in the UK. But a source close to Michael said the story was two-and-a-half years old and to the best of her knowledge, the superstar never ever had any intention to do so. Sounds like a careless whisper has been found guilty of making a big splash -- and all for nothing.
