    THey still have http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com which supplys updates. Damn, if I coded the blaster worm I would have got it to hit microsoft.com ;-) Haha. Just kidding.

    $3.00 since it will work atthe end of the year once the DoS stops. ;-)
    Come to UnError.com

    Think they'll ever catch who coded the worm? After a whilie i wanna get a copy of it just to see how it was writtin....with everyone copying it and makin dupes of it and some small changes it just sounds interesting gettin a copy and lookin at whats causing all this havoc. Oh well...without holes and worms and these virus's whats the point of security? Wonder how many other copies of this worm is gonnna come out. I place my bid at $5.50.

    $250 cause after 31 Dec 2003 I'll site it on RedHat & then charge RH $1M for the publicicty rights.

    (Wonder if SCO will still want to charge me a fee then?)
