        and anyone else agree that there should be a world wide law stating that any hackers who are found to be creating worms/virus shall be executed?

            That's why it isn't afraid. It doesn't have the depth perception to know that its about to be hit.
            I can ADS using more than a 2x without significant stutter! This was a good patch.

                Linux is an open-source operating system. (You can edit the code, it's free) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux

                You can't enforce that law. I'm all for it but it's impossible to enforce. As soon as a virus is let loose on the Internet, there isn't much you can do to track the perpetrators that made it.

                EDIT: If you think your computer is infected, try going to this site. www.f-secure.com If you can't reach the site, you might have the virus because it blocks access to that site. (It might say that in the articule)

                  Well apparantly the fear of it is misplaced. The same virus has undergone other triggers before tomorow, and never any major issues, so the thought is this will be the same.

                    Yes, but this time, the world might end!

                    I've got up to date virus software. I fear no worm.
