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

No, but I just heard from them that ABCNews and The New York Times were hit (though World News Tonight is going on right now without a hitch)

We need vid clips everyone!

LMFAO, they are telling people to contact the fbi "if they belive they have been attacked" telling people there is no need to worry about airlines being closed or terrorists, some dumb**** just opened the wrong email attachment and they are talking about it as though an asteroid was about to colide with earth

Perhaps reading the article I linked to may be an idea? RTFA.

For those of you too lazy, they first say it's Rbot, then later on they say it may be Zotob. Can't remember, but iirc Zotob uses a rbot backend.

It's really dumb that Microsoft practically keeps anti-virus companies in business by practically telling hackers that there are exploits in the system.

I mean, in the description of the patch, it pretty much tells hackers where to look and create exploits for viruses.

What other choice do they have? Just keeping the problems quiet, and never issuing a patch? That'll do a whole lot of good.

I don't. CNN's IT department is obviously incompetent. They should just fire everyone and start over.
