Well that's pretty lulzy...

"Hello I am from the Microsoft Windows security services and you are having the problem!"

Imagine falling for that so publicly. MY. SIDES. No wonder he deleted the tweet.

Hey, Krugman! Let's play the "What's your stripper name game!" To find out your stripper name, just add your mother's maiden name, the name of your first pet, and the last four of your social security number. I'm Smith Fido 3725! Now you go...

EDIT: "I am from the Windows security service and your IP has been hacked and is being used to download kiddie porn" is *literally* the script of a hoary social engineering hack to get grandma and grandpa to hand over their passwords or otherwise get pwnt.

I know a bunch of internet-Right B-list pundits are falling all over themselves to claim that this was Krugman blurting out a CP confession, but it just makes them sound as technologically clueless as he made himself sound yesterday.

Okay, Q-boomer.
