This Week's Hot News: April Fool's Edition
By
Conficker Panic

April Fool's day is a lot of fun, however this year it was overshadowed (kind of) by a virus that was supposed to wreak havoc on April 1. While the virus itself has been around for months now, as March drew to a close, experts rushed to figure out the who/what/where and when of the Conficker worm. The Department of Homeland Security released a tool to help identify infected machines, Microsoft offered a bounty of $250,000 for information leading to an arrest and researchers discovered evidence that led them to believe the virus hailed from China. April Fool's came and went and nothing of consequence has happened yet.

    Of course the woman on the commercial was a actress. Does anyone honestly think that Microsoft randomly approach someone and give them this challenge? This would be like hunting down a kid from a Sunny D commercial to see him choose the soda (or god forbid the purple stuff) over the Sunny D.
