Virus in May 2004

From Slashdot I go to Sophos May TopTen viruses.

There's no mention to Korgo which has been in the wild 48 hours ago. It's curious how most of then are easy to detect and erase with any ordinary anti-virus tool but the fact is that they keep on spawnning theirselves all around. Like an infite loop.

Who writtes virus? that was the question I was talking with a friend, it's common criteria for users to suppose anti-virus companies are supporting this because virus are they raw materia.

In my opinion -and read before to others- spammers has a great interest on some kind of virus; a virus that don't overload your computer and let them to control it remotely (famous backdors installed by different virus). This behaviour let then expand and infite zoombie network to resend spam.

And for sure, we, postmasters of Internet siffer it, and belive me, we suffer with a lot of pain... dont forget Adminspotting.
