Hmm... since new Macs operate on OSX, which is kind of a Unix/Linux derivation, I wonder if this could infect Linux PCs?

Anyway, thanks for the great info in that post, Paula... good stuff.

Pft. They haven't enough people to do what they need to do without adding onto poking through every Joe and Jane Public's personal computer.

any computer or o/s is susceptible to virus. it's just that most virus writers write them for windows because more people use windows. its not that the other comuter or o/s are immune. as more people are getting mac you're seeing them writing virii for mac. so as more people use linux, they will write for that too, if they haven't already.

THOUSANDS of Australian internet users are expected to be knocked offline on Monday when the impact of a virus released a year ago will be felt.

So I'm thinking they had to take down those two servers to prove the infection and reinforce their case by allowing the infection to surface. What? Oh, you mean our government wouldn't do that? hehe! Yeah, okay!
As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.
