New Worm is a Hoax

http://www.cnn.com/2009/TECH/03/31/a...rus/index.html

Please tell me I am not the only voice of reason. So many people are talking about how scared they are. First, I pwn them by telling them that getting rid of Windows is probably for the best. Secondly, this is going to be a hoax. Anyone who really believes that all these computers will be attacked tomorrow is mentally ill.

Oh man. I hope this is true. An army of zombie computers causing havoc would be awesome.

Re: New Worm is a Hoax

Even if its real my computer is well protected and all my sensitive files (ie: anime, pics, important documents) are already backed up on my external plus I have anti-virus and all that good stuff. I R not worried.

PS: April 1st? Pretty convenient.
