  • Badtrans virus... will run without user action

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) — An Internet worm that leaves infected computers vulnerable to future hacking by tracking what is typed on the keyboard, including passwords and credit card details, was spreading rapidly Monday, computer security companies warned. The worm, called "Badtrans," spreads through Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express e-mail programs and automatically sends itself to unanswered e-mails in inboxes, according to several antivirus companies

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

        Outlook, virus, and worm are always seen together

        Security hole, patch needed, virus spread, and WinNT/2000 are always seen together.

        Linux, Stability, Security(not lack of), etc...are always seen together.

        A patern, no?
