A 18 year-old has been arrested for making a modified version of the “Blaster” virus. [Article] The weird thing about this is that every news story I have seen or heard about this has mentioned that the guy is 6′ 4″ and 320 pounds. Yeah, that’s big.

My inboxes continue to be flooded with the SoBig.F virus. I’ve probably received over 250 copies of it in the last 48 hours. If you’re looking for a way to avoid these kind of infections, consider using an email client other than Outlook. I use The Bat!, and I find it to be a superior email client anyway. Of course, the best thing to do is not open attachments, even when they appear to come from someone you know.
