A syndrome most computers aquire after being used by, being near, being talked about by beefalo.

Symptoms – Unexplained power-offs, screen flicker, odd burning smell, loud squeaking/clunking sound, refusal to behave in a sensible manner, loss of internet connection etc…

Need not be a computer, anything with a microchip can become vulnerable. There are no known patches or fixes.
