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?
    When you say no virii for *nix I'll just assume you mean Cheese, Li0n, & (ect) correct? Most of these non-existing worms for *nix spread because of all that non-existant exposure to vulnerabilities. Please define a intelligent person for me and why a OS is involved.

    I've seen even the most average and not-so technical Joe Blow can pick up on another OS simply because it's "the hip thing to do". The majority of *nix machines online right now are still mostly owned by companies running servers & I don't find those Suit and Tie types to be any smarter than the average Joe at all. Even at times I myself have run various styles of OS.

    And im a dumb-ass and to say that I or peaple like me are in any way "intelligent people" is degrading to yourself & AO.

    I wonder how all of these strange rumors get started about us computer geeks being antisocial and elitist
    Thats an easy one.
    Computer geeks dont speak in a recognized language. A delimiting variable composed of an object,linked to a router,that has an ip, that works on tcp, with netbios,netbui.and what is udp all about.

    Did somebody suggest Mac? Don't feel secure just yet. Even Macs have trojan...

    Yes, it's not a real trojan, it's more a social eng effort. But still somebody really spent some time to (learn to) create an AppleScript (which is known to be unsecure) program for that matter.

    I got this in FD this morning. Now I'm not a big fan of M$ but let's be real here... While his intention may not have been to do damage, it did damage. To expect that a worm isn't going to do something is silly, especially since there are ample examples of this in history (Morris is the best and most famous one). I don't know. Maybe it's just me but as the saying goes... "do the crime, do the time".

    At the moment the Author of SASSER, Sven Jaschan is free again. Don't let him be a victim of the mistakes microsoft makes. Microsoft is still working on a new process, we want to give Mr. Jaschan some money to at least hire a lawyer to stand against the troll called Microsoft! At http://support-sasser.homepage.dk you can support this project using PayPal. We'll wait for a few weeks and then use the money the way money is meant to be used.

    Let's all make sure that microsoft can't blame engineers and worm-authors for using these so-called "Microsoft Features" also known as bugs! After all, SASSER was intended as a harmless wake-up call to the world. Imagine what could happen if this had been done by criminals with no respect for the public. Medical systems could be open for tampering, harbor control systems could cause massive oil spills by terrorists and so on. Sven did the right thing by making this alarm call. When will people realise that microsofts base products are not fit to be subjected to the hostile environment that the internet is these days?

    PLEASE HELP US SUPPORT THE CAUSE! THIS INSANE MICROSOFT MANIA MUST END!

    Cheers,
    The support sasser team.

    Oh Yes!

    My pet garden slug has better social engineering..............send the money to me instead..........I will buy "bullseye", "speer", mercury (the elemental metal)...............and put them all out of their misery?

    Spend the money on what it should be spent on?............how many lines/lids /shots??????????????

    ACK!

    Seems like a scam to rip off Microsoft haters............

    And don't think that THEY won't be watching who contributes.....maybe it is THEIR site/scam?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
