I did wander why it went a bit weird when I tried to view it from work earlier

Kept going to the login page but then blanking it out.

Didn't get a prompt for a download or anythign nasty though (although I think the company firewall blocks activex.etc)

I wondered why the College Antivirus (Mcafee) went crazy, well now I know.

I am pretty sure we have the IP of the person who did this, he left a trail (probably not intentionally) but we found one none-the-less.
Do you know roughly where in the world the IP address belongs? Russia? Eastern Europe? China?

I hate when movies get tech information wrong. I mean, would it be that hard to ask somebody's kid what the format of an IP address is?

Most programmes nowadays have scientific/technology advisors. That one should have been fired.

I was wondering why I got a warning from my AV when I entered Neowin earlier.

So what exactly did this virus thing do?

Yesterday morning I woke up checked my email visted neowin, and all the sudden my trillian crashed, and wouldn't start back up, and my flashget inside the sandbox got all wierd on me. My clock got set to 2099 so I logged off and back on amy computer nd my trillian started working again but my sandboxed flashget said server busy retry or ignore. My web browser is always sandboxed, so I just terminated all processes inside the sandobx and deleted everything in the sandbox and everything worked fine. I *heart* sandboxie

It basically made everyone's AV tell them that it cleaned out a trojan and nothing else.

people are retards... why bother hacking sites to advertise your own... that just leads to faster arrests...

also, if you need to hack another site to show off yours, you may need to rethink how to obtain an audience from a non-hacking web site (Y)

I agree it's not that hard for them to ask or you know look it up, but my guess would be that someone did it to make people like us notice it. But if it was a mistake thats pretty bad...

Wonder how bad they will mess up on that kind of thing once we start using IPv6 :p
