But you can use more than four words. You can use entire sentences. Something memorable for a bank as an example. "Thefrontdoorofthebankhasrustonthebottomhinge". Or "TheofficemanagerCindypluckshereyebrowstothin". Easily memorable Brazilian nut code. (Bloody hard to crack).

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade.

But this is where the Linux desktop confusion and social enginering breaks down. KDE, Gnome, LXDE, XFCE, Unity, Enlightenment, and on and on and on... There would not be a 'one size fits most' way of perpetuating this scam. Even if the user could be led to a website to download something, would it be
I switched my elderly mother to Ubuntu a few years back and she recieved one of these calls. Acording to her it went something like this.
Caller: This is *** from *** we noticed that there is somthing wrong with your computer and we are calling to help you fix it.
Her: Okay, let me get on my computer. What's wrong with it?
Caller: We have recieved notification from your computer that it has spyware on it. It has notified us and we are calling to help.
Her: Okay, I'm in front of my computer. What do I do?
Caller: First, click on the start button.
Her: I don't have a start button.
Caller: It's the icon on the lower left that says start.
Her: I don't have one of those. I have Yoobunto, Ewebantoo, I don't know, my son put it on here...
Caller: Please just click the button that says "Start".
Her: But I don't have one of those.
This apparently went on for several minutes. Finally she hung up and called me. If she was running Windows, she probably would have gone along with the scam. This is not to say that the problem is with Windows, but rather that, as long as MOST people use Windows, there will always be an idiot to be found and these scams will occur.
But imagine the problems these callers would have if Debian, (or Debian based), systems were the norm...
Caller: Okay, which desktop do you have installed?
Her: Desktop? What do you mean?
Caller: What does your screen look like?
Her: Flowers. I found I nice picture of lilacs.
Caller: Umm... Can you open a terminal?
Her: What's a terminal?
I don't think these scammers would even gotten started.
Imagine what this could do for toast.
Herbivores are food. Carnivores are pets. Simple as that.
I let my children keep herbivores as pets, but they are really just a potential food supply.
Even the turtle.
1+i dimensionally challenged.
It's amazing to me that there is so much flame out there for this. None of you could do this, Not a single one of you have tried, and yet, this small group of dedicated people have actually figured out a piece of proprietary hardware to the point of having their code included in the Linux kernel? Way to go guys.
Update to version 3.2.
Seriously? That's what you are going to use to scare people away from OO? It took one click to find the solution to your petty quibble.
Actually makes the world a better place. Go figure.
Who cares? It's as bad as a Linux desktop. At the end of the day, what works for you works for you. Add in all the goofy names and no average user will ever even know about them. Obscurity by obscurity.

Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, director of the Shurat HaDin Israel Law Center, sent a letter to Twitter on Thursday asserting that the company is violating U.S. law by allowing groups such as Hezbollah and al Qaeda affiliate al-Shabaab to use its popular online network.
"It has come to our attention that Twitter Inc. provides social media and associated services to such foreign terrorist organizations," Darshan-Leitner wrote. In her letter, Darshan-Leitner noted that Hezbollah and al-Shabaab are officially designated as terrorist organizations under U.S. law. She also cited a 2010 Supreme Court case — Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project — which upheld a key provision of the Patriot Act prohibiting material support to groups designated as terrorist outfits."
