    ------------------------------------
    Due to the decreased submissions, SARC has down graded this threat level to 3 from 4.

    The CIH virus, also known as Chernobyl, was first discovered in June 1998 in Taiwan. According to the Taipei authorities, the CIH virus was written by Chen Ing-hau, and the name of the virus derived from his initials.

    CIH is a very destructive virus with a payload that destroys data. On April 26, 1999, the payload triggered for the first time, and caused many computer users to lose their data. In Korea, it was estimated as many as one million computers were affected, resulting in more then $250 million in damages.

    In April 2000, although the virus is rather old, Symantec still believes the virus is in the wild and may cause damage to computer users who are using outdated virus definitions or who are not using antivirus software.

    For me, the most deadly virus is when the creator of the virus doesn't even know how to create the antidote for the virus he made.
    Listen closely to your enemies. They tell you your faults.

    lol There's a new virus for everyday, whether it's a holiday or not. It's kinda sad. I always check out the recent viruses on Symantec, and I'm just amazed at how many new ones are discovered on a daily basis
