Expert mocks 'expert' who warns Earthlings to avoid infecting alien computers

I don’t know how I missed this story last week, but I did, and through that inattentiveness I may have inadvertently subjected some innocent alien being’s computer to a virus.

How, you ask. I don’t know. And neither does genuine human security expert Graham Cluley, who read about the concerns of an Oxford University researcher and addresses them in this video (which is amusing though longer than it needs to be).

Yes, I would have to agree with Cluley that how Jeff Goldblum’s character saved the day in "Independence Day" would trump any concerns an Oxford researcher might have on the subject.
