    I fail to see the significance of "uh-uh". It is Microsoft after all :p

    At least MS won't be able to trot out the false "it's attacking Unix" line anymore, since it's going after them in addition to SCO.

    I guess MS should now update their cost of Windows vs. Linux page to include the cost of cleaning this mess up. But I doubt they will.

    Actually this virus was released 2 days ago..but I'm not saying how I know..I just have access to some nonexistent BB.

    They say they have found all the variants but they haven't...more exist out in the wild.

    Anyone have a link confirming that MS's paid "journalists" are actually calling this a "virus spread via UNIX mail servers"??

    The name Thurott was mentioned...

    I wonder, if the virus isn't stopped ( I kinda hope it's not), will Bill Gates still be knighted? Or has he already? I didn't really read that story too much.

    So will MyDoom.b become available via Windows Update? I'm sure everyone wants to make sure they have the most up-to-date executables!
