Bad Internet Weather

For those not in the know, the Internet has been under attack the past few months by a very aggressive and smart bot called the Storm Worm. A bot is basically a virus that is actually controllable by the author. Approximately 2 million machines have been infected by this bot, and the author of this thing has full control of all those computers.

Currently it is being used to send out more email spam to infect new computers and for a pump and dump scam. Scary stuff if this guy decides to DoS attack someone.

Don’t open that attachment you just got from some one you don’t know is all I can say.
