It's not going to be in the definitions if it's a new virus is it ?  :laugh:

Yes it is, because it exploits a hole that microsoft has released a patch for already.

They can instantly contain by just blocking TCP ports 445, 8080, and 33333 on their firewall. The virus spreads via those ports.

That would be great. I love how everyone is running around looking at computers in the background. Does CNN have any security at all? This could have been easily stopped.

that won't help if it's already in the system. it will still spread internally, that would only prevent you from getting it.

I am praying that Fox News gets hit HARD. They would really really make it sound like the end of the world.

The FBI is probably laughing at them...

as for the movie clip.. no need... this is all that has happened

CNN computers are down, oh no, the world is doomed, we're too stupid to apply patches.

MicroTrend- yes, you're idiots

FBI- haha

United Nations- why do we talk to them...

I missed that clip by about 20 seconds. I'm so mad. If you want just a normal clip, I got some. I'm recording it hoping for another Windows 97-type comment.
