That's great news, but the SoBig virus is much more disturbing.
What's apparently going on with that is beta testing: variants of
this virus have been released regularly, and the suspicion is that
the creators are working toward some goal other than annoying all
of us with hundreds of silly email messages. Some say its related
to spam, and really that would be the best we could hope for,
because it could be building toward a more dangerous ending.
Well, I'll take the good news anyway. This kid who wrote MSBLAST
is apparently of legal age, so I'm sure he's going to get pretty
severe punishment, not because MSBLAST really did much (shutting
down some pretty stupid government agencies comes under the
category of "you knew it was coming and did nothing"), but because
politically this is ripe for retribution. Too bad for him, but
maybe it will make the next little snot think twice.
Got something to add? Send me email.
