Rob Rosenberger, the man behind Vmyths.com, the website that uses humour to make important points about the hype surrounding information security, has certainly been on-form in November:
- Sun Nov 14 14:31:44 2004 VM: mi2g plays the ''voice of sanity'' card
- Tue Nov 16 05:46:36 2004 VM: Let's give thanks for antivirus software that so often fails to do its job
- Wed Nov 17 08:31:33 2004 VM: The significance of one handwritten resignation letter
In his email newsletter, he also takes a shot at the lack of reaction to the revelation that over 60,000 PC's were messed up in a Windows XP upgrade, reported in The Register, saying, "If a computer virus did this, you know full well the media would go ballistic... Why, why, WHY does this double standard exist?"
Think about it next time someone warns you about the latest mobile phone malware that has messed up perhaps a dozen phones worldwide… oh, that's us!
