TrendMicro folks are saying this is a new virus. Regardless, salute the CNN idiots for not updating their software and virus definitions. :p

True, well that was before they said it was a new virus.

TrendMicro guy told Wolf Blitzer off, yet they still try to make it a big deal because of their computers going down.

CNN definetely needs a new IT staff

No, that was the cancelled "Nashville", Windows 95 with IE integration which became Windows 98 :pinch:

BTW, in the background I saw one of the computers show the timed shutdown box -- they must be really h4x0r3d.

they also referred to windows 99

...and wolfie said something about "Microsoft XP".....no need for the word "Windows" i guess....

sounds to me like CNN got hit because of their crappy luck and crappy IT department and they want to make it look like they weren't the only ones that got hit, even though they are.....wolfie was like "We have looked into it and the United Nations appears to be fine as does the stock market ticker......etc"

lol, duh :p
