    Too bad MyDoom's "Dick-On-aStick" attack on Darl McBride should prove to be equally as successful.

    MyDoom did nothing. It's all you people checking at once just to SEE if MyDoom took the site down that are causing the problem!

    I thought the microsoft.com attack was supposed to start today too. Their site is still up though.

    Ah damn, Looks like their web site is back up again.

    If SCO didn't do stupid things like falsely claim some code belongs to them in Linux and then charge high fees or sue anyone using linux then this attack wouldn't have happened.

    humm....

    SCO's main webpage has a very prominent iBook and mouse on it...

    pretty stupid considering that part of the page is about the MyDoom virus...

    Tell them what you think about the iBook spreading viruses!

    The Contact Us link on the bottom left corner doesn't work, you have to remove "www." from the link. Or just use this one:

    I sent them an e-mail:
    _________
    On the page http://sco.com/mydoom/ is a picture of an iBook, but they are free of this virus. Maybe a Dell should be put there instead.
    _________

    We don't want to have to wrong impressions given to the iBook ;)
