New Bagle Worm Variant

As I suspected, there’s a new variant of the Bagle worm working its way through the Internet. I’ve gotten pounded with probably 50 copies in the last 12 hours.

Here’s what I don’t get: these worms and viruses have been around in one form or another for the last three years. HOW MANY TIMES DO PEOPLE NEED TO GET INFECTED TO REALISE THAT THESE THINGS CAUSE HUGE PROBLEMS? Seriously, people. How is it that several of my “correspondents” — who, I might add, appear to be of the “add every single e-mail address on the Internet to my addressbook” philosophy, because I’ve never actually corresponded with them — have managed to send me at least five copies of each variant of the last five or six major Windows e-mail worms? You’d think these folks would get the idea after the first two or three.

In case any of them are reading this, let me give them some advice:

STOP OPENING ATTACHMENTS. STOP USING OUTLOOK. STOP USING MICROSOFT OPERATING SYSTEMS. AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, TAKE MY E-MAIL ADDRESS OUT OF YOUR ADDRESS BOOK. I DON’T KNOW WHO YOU ARE!
