Worms


Boy, am I popular or what?

I just received my 3rd notification in two days that Bell South Email as intercepted a virus by the name Storm Worm. Each email had a strange name, such as “ecard from a friend”.

It appears that the three (so far) are from three different sources.

I am not sure I should be mad somebody is trying to do my computer harm or gleeful because someone is noticing me.

I've been getting some of those too, but mine come into the spam folder. I almost opened the first one I got, but realized at the last minute that it couldn't be real and got rid of it before it opened.

It's a "worm" (though, more accurately, a trojan), you're not popular. You're a tool.

The answer? Russian spammers are in control of the "Storm Worm", they've demonstrated an exceptional ability to control it and guide it in new directions. And it currently holds the most powerful distributed computing power in the world. What's frightening is, it's going to be used for spam and not crunching numbers.

By the way, I unfortunately stumbled on this waste of space, while looking for "stolen baby jesus sandy plains road".
