Corrine has a new blog! She has combined two of her major interests in a really unique way – gardens and computer security.
Worms in your garden are one thing — and generally considered good for aerating the soil and the song birds certainly like them. Computer worms, however, are another story entirely!
Corrine is not particularly happy with WGA either and she talks about it on her new blog, and she wasn’t surprised to learn that there is already a worm that spreads through AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) and disguises itself as WGA:
In Corrine’s posting she also says that, “Mr. Kirk also reported from Sophos PLC, a security vendor, that Cuebot-K can disable other software, shut off the Windows firewall, download other malicious programs, perform DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks, and more.”
Corrine talks more about WGA in her Garden Phone? posting as well.
This is way bad news and not at all unexpected unfortunately.
Great to see you blogging now Corrine! 🙂
