'OT: While we're talking of viruses...'

I got a warning of a really nasty one, one of these days. I thought it was
pretty cool, so I've translated parts of it (it was VERY long :-))


Losely translated from Norwegian:

"Wirus warning! If you get a mail that says "Hi" in the subject line, you
have to delete it..."

       bla, bla goes on about 'most dangerous ever' before starting to describe
what it acually does:

"It deletes your bootsector, and that's not all. It leaps over to lose discs
within a range of 100 meters. It puts dirty language in all your outgoing
letters; make hard knots on all the cabling at the back of the PC and smudge
your keyboard with butter and jam.

It messes up your fridge's thermostat so that the butter melts and the milk
separates. It makes fake money and put them in your wallet; puts aperitive
in the dog's food, so you have to run outside all night with it; it distorts
all your music CD's, puts shrimp-peels in your bed and rocks in your
foodprocessor.

It puts defroster in your aquarium, drinks all your beer [is nothing sacred
anymore?!] and changes the mayonaise with latex adhesive when you're having
guests. It produces amphetamine in your bath tube, while frying bacon in the
kitchen - which it forgets - and goes out to chase old women with your brand
new tractor lawn mower."

Hope I never get this virus, it kind of strikes me that it would be a *pain
in the ass* to get rid of it... :-)

Bite your tongue. By the time you finish school it may happen once a week,
the way things are going. The Internet is full of more or less active
controls and other things with a mind of their own and many idealist
engineers connect microcomputer-controlled household applications to the
web with frenezy and very little understanding of the implications and
security/access control issues involved. The worst thing I saw in this
direction was a guy in Canada who was trying to interface equipment in a
nuclear experiments lab with a CGI script, for online access by
students/staff, and hoped for the passwords to be enough security. I hope
he got to talk with someone professional meanwhile. Sheesh.
