    Default MS Update Virus

    I know that the MS Update Virus does not affect a Mac but has any other
    virus been as annoying. Will the mail with update attachments ever
    stop?

    The short answer is no.

    The longer answer is that a lawyer in southern California has filed a suit
    against MS claiming violation of consumer protection laws; the lawyer is
    asking for class action status for all residents of California in the same
    boat (I guess there are multiple Windows users in California :->).

    The goal is to get around the end user license where end users get it in
    the end. (By the way, I just heard Arnold has declined to be sworn in as
    governor -- he found out he'd have to move to Sacramento.)

    This particular virus will probably die down after a while. However it
    will almost certainly be followed by more like it.

    I must have been fortunate then. After receiving about 9000 of these
    over the last few weeks, they abruptly stopped arriving some time over
    the last week. Touch wood, I'm not asking questions! I imagine
    eventually, patches will seep through and the offending servers sending
    the crap will start to be disabled. When they are practically
    destroying the utility of email in some cases, it can't happen soon
    enough!
     

    I'm dubious about whether this will work, and even if it is well
    directed, but damn, I'll support it all the way! Someone needs to get
    tough on this.
