    If you run a mail server, this story will interest you -- 'a new piece of malicious software has been created that takes over a PC. This "zombie" computer is then used to send spam via the mail server of that PC's Internet service provider. This means the junk mail appears to come from the ISP, making it very hard for an antispam blacklist to block it.'

    Why don't these hacking idiots all get together and make video games instead?

    Wish they would but they are just proud of wallowing in mud like swines.
    To tell them to do something constructive is like giving a pig a bathe good radiance.

    I wish someone would create a virus that infests itself in the virus writers computer and not only screws up his computer but his credit as well. Then it mutates and is sent to all his other little pathetic hax0rz buds.

    wouldn't that be nice, have future computers with a hidden program built in that if removed wont allow the computer to work, so if I hacker begins to wrtie a virus, the computer notices it, then messes him up or somthing. sux that there will probably be no way to completely stop them.

    I'm no hax0r but I can guarantee you that most, if not all, virus' share similar code, or controls in order to execute. If this is the case then I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard for an OS to recognize malicious code and shut down. I bet you could have a background app in Windows, Linux, etc., that actually checks for this code on a users computer and not only shuts him down, but broadcasts his ID, IP, etc., all around the net.
