    Post Prepare for BAGEL

    Bagle computer virus unleashed

    Computer users are being warned about a new virus which has spread at "an alarming rate".

    Internet security firm MessageLabs says it has detected more than 70,000 copies of the W32/Bagle-mm virus in the past 24 hours.

    The computer virus, or worm, is contained in infected emails as an attachment.

    The aim of the worm is to spread further by looking for new email addresses in the infected computer, such as in the user's list of contacts.

    Experts at MessageLabs say it appears the worm is also programmed to send details about all infected computers to website addresses in Germany, though the sites do not yet appear to be up and running.

    Paul Wood, chief information security analyst at the firm, said: "We have seen over 73,000 copies of Bagle, and this number is rising at an alarming rate."

    Infected emails include a file attachment ending .exe and the word "hi" in the subject line. The message contains the word "test" followed by the symbol =).

    Analysis shows the worm has a cut-off date of January 28, a ploy used by hackers in the past to avoid detection. The advice to users is to ensure they update their anti-virus software on a regular basis.

    This guy looks ready

    I envision a world where people dawning long white robes and elaborate headdresses run rampant down the streets, waving their arms in the air while screaming "we've gone mad, we've gone mad", like defrocked monks breaking the silence of ages past.

    I checked it out on snopes.com (the urban legends site) and it's real.

    It's harmless, however, if you set your system date to January 28 2004 or later. It also only affects Windows NT or Windows-based systems - another reason for the innate superiority of the Mac! (All hail the Panther! )

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.
    Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. (John 1:1-4)

    Once I feel more comfortable with Linux, I will use it as my main system. I could never buy a mac after watching Pirates of Silicon Valley. Hisss Steve Jobs.

    Oy vey, stupid jews can't even spell it right: It's B-A-G-E-L. I like the salted ones with extra cream cheese. Bagels are one of the finer notes of Judaic cuisine. Matzo bread tastes like cardboard. I think Jews must have mutated tastebuds, they can actually eat stuff like this:
