• A virus called incredimail

    There is a new virus out! Maybe it’s a worm too! Or another infectuous disease, I don’t know. It’s not in full swing yet, but reportedly 25.000.000 machines are already infected. Compared to this, the MyDoom virus/worm strain is peanuts. The bugger is called incredimail and it’s the biggest pain in the lower back I’ve seen so far. Until now — being a Macintosh user — I’ve been spared of the annoyances that all my Windows using friends where bestowed upon courtesy of the Microsoft empire. This one can’t be stopped by Macintosh either. You know you are infected if you start receiving funny looking emails, reminiscant of when you started receiving funny looking letters in the beginning of the “desktop publishing” so-called “revolution” era. Now it’s email that shows you all the colours of the rainbow, every possible graphic ever put on a CD, mixed with a healthy dose of the most terrible sounds and moving objects that can hurt your ears and eyes. And that is just the background of the message… incredible indeed.

    I have officially applied for protection by the Red Cross, the UNHCHR, Greenpeace, Amnesty International and various other human rights organizations. I suggest you do the same before it is too late.
