Update and scan while you still can

February 1st, 2006

Yet another virus is set to cause havok this Friday for Windows users.

Have you heard about the new Unix virus? It comes in source form. All you have to do is visit a website that hosts the virus, right-click and save the file to your hard drive, untar it to a temporary directory, run ./configure, make, make test, then su to root and run make install, then run the program. Poof – you’re infected.

  1. Nice one Brent!

    A bit above the head of the average Windows user – but I guess that is one of the “roots”, so to speak???
