Gaaa the stupidity of people make me mad. Appearantly theres alot of people in my area infected with it, my entire cable compony's network went down for like 4 hours and I assumed it was cause of this but I called them anyway just to see what they'd say and they confirmed it was.

Thats hella funny. It would be even better if MSNBC got infected.

Ah, MSNBC. That would be pretty funny. Although unlikely. I saw a computer crash on ABC 7 News (locally) yesterday.

MSNBC's tech department is top-notch. That's where I heard about the virus, more than THREE DAYS AGO. This just makes CNN look like a bunch of fools.

As for FOX News, I could see it now:

FOX NEWS ALERT

EVERY COMPUTER IN AMERICA IS AT RISK: NEW VIRUS SPREADS QUICKLY. THE VIRUS WILL CAUSE YOUR COMPUTER TO NEVER WORK AGAIN. IT IS CRUCIAL THAT YOU TURN YOUR COMPUTER OFF RIGHT NOW OR YOU WILL DIE, DIE!

FOX NEWS ALERT

VIRUS CREATORS BELIEVED TO BE OPERATING OUT OF A TERROR CELL ORIGINALLY FORMED IN PAKISTAN. THE TERRORISTS ATTACKED FOX NEWS BECAUSE WE ARE AMERICA'S NEWSROOM AND BECAUSE WE ARE FAIR AND BALANCED.

IT IS BELIEVED THAT EVERY AMERICAN IS AT RISK. MICROROSFT HAS BEEN KNOCKED OUT. COMPUTERS RUNNING WINDOWS 97 ARE AT THE GREATEST RISK.

FOX NEWS ALERT

WE HAVE JUST LEARNED THAT WE HAVE BEEN HIT BY THE VIRUS AND NOW THE ONLY CREDIBLE NEWS OUTLET MUST SIGN OFF FOR HQ WILL LIKELY EXPLODE.

and of course I must take a shot at MSNBC (as I love to do):

FLASH NEWS

AMERICANS CELEBRATE THE DEMISE OF THE FOX NEWS CHANNEL. WE'LL HAVE AN UPDATE AFTER THIS CERMONIAL 50TH RERUN OF "HEADLINERS AND LEGENDS: DREW BARRYMORE"

Anyone have a mirror for the videos?

Rapidshare won't let me download and I can't find a proxy that will work.

Does this have something to do with Google being down?

According to CNN 20 minutes ago, There's more than 100 companies are affected. :blink:

El Mundo (Spain): Reports late this morning indicated the Zotob worm had hit computers on Capitol Hill, several schools in Scotland and those of several media organizations, including CNN.

Yea, Google will block your IP for running certain automated queries. They introduced it after the whole phpBB2 worm, which searched for victims uisng google.

Figured it out. Some monkey on our LAN was running SEO software that was hammering Google to check for links.

Reprimanded.

You got it all wrong, first they'd ask different media outlets, then UN, then the White House... then realize it's just them...
