Microsoft Creates Anti-Virus Bounty To Help Track Down Virus Writers
from the Bill-Gates-has-a-posse dept
What do you if you're in an unchartered area with no reasonable law enforcement, and criminals are running rampant? You convince everyone to become the "enforcement" arm and find someone rich enough to pay them to help fight crime. Microsoft can't be bothered to fix a few of the holes in their programs that make it incredibly easy to pass on viruses, so instead, they're setting aside $5 million for anti-virus bounty hunters who can track down anyone responsible for worms, trojan horses or viruses. The rewards will be given out in $250,000
wads of cash from Bill Gates wallet increments. So, now, who's going to round up an anti-virus posse?
