    Storm worm batters Internet...
    Full story here.

    It was quite bad in England yesterday (weather-wise; haven't noticed the spam attack myself), and I'm hearing it was much worse in other parts of Europe...

    Living in the Southwest, I have been looking for those 1000 dead folks. This morning I got up and turned over a rock and would you believe that I didn't fine one of them?

    Not only a virus, but a lying one.

    I think that I received around 10 virus packed emails this morning which is above normal.

    Ok, I'm getting ready to head to the Summit.

    10-4 Over and out

    The big thing in spam recently seems to be hyperbolic imaginary news headlines. Apparently what they do is take real news headlines and make them much more alarming. I guess they've found it an effective way to get less intelligent or more impetuous people to open the mails.

    yeah, gotta see that movie!



    I've seen a lot of these emails for the last three days here. Didn't know they were very similar to the ones that were bringing down major routers in Europe. For some reason my antivirus ignores them, but Outlook won't let me easily see the attachments so that's cool.
