MyDoom overtakes Sobig.F as biggest computer virus outbreak

MyDoom Virus was created to take down SCO’s website with some kind of denial of service attack.  It spreads by exploiting human nature which is hard to create a “patch” for.  Now SCO steps up to find the culprit.  I’m no fan of SCO but I hope they catch them.

Business spent $55,000,000 on virus cleanup and defense in 2003.  Job security for some of us and some source of twisted joy for others.

I wonder what we could have spent the 55 Billion on if we didn’t have to spend it here?
