The Internet Is Becoming Unusable
from the run!--hide! dept
Ah, you have to love the crazy anti-virus firms. One of them has put out a ridiculous press release saying that the internet will become unusable by 2008 due to viruses. Seems like a simple case of extrapolation by these guys who need to keep the fear levels high to make their money. When confronted about the press release by the good folks at the Register, a spokesperson admitted that perhaps it was a little “alarmist”. Now they tell us? What about those poor souls who gave up the internet for good after hearing that Code Red was going to kill the internet? Are they like the Y2K crazies who are still bunkered down in mountain hideouts waiting for the fallout from Y2K nuclear apocalypse to subside before venturing forth?
