    Maybe M$ should take some credit, it if hadn't been for their inability to code properly or assure quality of workmanship this kid wouldn't have caused as much, if any, damage. Then again he probably would have a nice cushy job if he hadn't released it into the wild like that.

    There's many sides to this story but I like how the media seems to take only one. to world media...

    Yes they are busy takeing credit for provideing patches... maybe they should take credit for all the lazy moronic fools that where infected weeks later because they sat on thier ass. Really they should not take to much credit for anything... they do that way to much when they buy out things from peaple and toss it out as their own.

    KorpDeath, wow you sound exactly like a true blue windows user there bud. But peaple get malware because they are lazy and stupid. Linux servers on the net today are about as secure as a fat ugly girl at a school dance... why? Because peaple are lazy and stupid thats why. I say everyone should just run a Mac... you'll still be running a pile of crap no matter how many times you change OS like a pair of socks or underwear... but with a Mac atleast that way it'd be so lame that no one would even bother messing around in there. Or better yet... go out and get yourself a pet rock and play with it.

    Did you know that he was perhaps busted by some friends he had? Couldn't just shut his mouth and got busted. But also money was behind it. Who would say no to $250,000 reward. Do you know why there aren't so many viruses ans wholes for MAC because they are hell to expensive for the normal user. Who would pay $2,000 to $4,000 just for a computer/notebook if he can have a nice PC dream machine? Yes Linux is a great System no doubt but Microsoft's Windows is more widely known. Due to the fact of their Monopoly but thank good people hate Windows and are changing to Linux.

    Well JP

    us computer geeks being antisocial and elitist?
    I am not antisocial, neither am I an elitist................elite maybe

    So just speak for yourself when you say "us computer geeks".........WE are people with a normal 27 hour day interest in electronic communications........

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Creater of the "Sasser" was also responsible for 28 Versions of "Netsky". He also had friends which helped him. One more of his friends said that they created the Virus.

    Post Sasser

    Just wanted to inform that he Creator of the "Sasser" Virus also created the 28 Versions of the "Netsky" Virus. What is new that he didn't work alone. He had help. They searched today in Germany five homes and one of his friends confesed that they have created the "Netsky" Virus. In my Opinion this Virus couldn't have been so successful if the Users would have done from time to time a Update of their Microsoft Windows. Thank God theres Linux which has not so much or none Security Holes. But then Linux is only used by IT Professionals whereas Microsoft Windows is used by nearly all of the World. In my Opinion the Reason why Microsoft is so successful is that ther Operating Systems have so many wholes that you have to always fix int and when you have it fixed then this people bring out a new System and you have to change it again to be up to date. On the other hand the wholes is good for Linux because until now nobody saw Linux only Windows and that was it. But now there is Linux which makes your live more easier. No wholes to fix, no Viruses and no Blue Screens. I don't think that Linux will be in the future safer than Windows. Because now everybody is running to Linux (intelligent people) and they e.g. SUSE want to bring out a newer better System. What do you think AO Members about that?
