    It prolly still affects 10.2.8. I bet Panther will rid this little horrid virus.

    You know... I think that this 'virus' if it can be called that.. was written by a mac user. "Because when you read the source code, the first comment calls OS*X users to give up their nonconformity and switch back to Microsoft Windows."
    To me that just screams sarcasm. People don't want to conform they want to stay with mac. It was probly some bored kid. Anyone could write a virus with applescript.

    Cool
    Very interesting. I wonder if it is true. The article is dated August 13 and i have not received any security alerts on this.

    the whole time i was reading that i thought there was something about it that wasnt right which is also why i didn't worry about it at all but now we know its true (not true but that its true that its false)

    Wow the lady that wrote that article, writes a lot.. a WHOLE LOT, of articles! Plus a lot of famous quotes have been by her! Apparently most news articles concerning touchy subjects are also given to those news companies by this lady.

    Too bad this post wasnt written by her though.. hmm..
