Thanks for the news sh4rkbyt3, and good news it is. If they are found guilty and put in prison we should have a party.

I don't normally have time to read a story like this word for word, but as I'm now 6 hours into a GMER scan, oddly enough, I seem to have plenty of time. :thumbsup:

Something else you might enjoy even more was posted on 21 June (ZDNet I believe). The jerks who have been using this Rogue Malware and some Rootkits are now suffering from their own attack vectors :thumbsup:! It appears they can create the stuff but there are anamolies that they're not equipped or knowledgable enough to handle >:flowers:. It appears the infections are coming right back to their own systems, LOL. How's that for Justice?
I love it when a snake gets poisoned by it's own fangs ;)!

Wow, talk about stupidity! Why the hell are they even making viruses for?!?!? Every hacker should be handcuffed to two truck's rear bumpers, have the word "Hacker" branded into their forehead, and be forced to run across the US at the same speed the trucks are going. :trumpet:

I'm not very forgiving when it comes to hackers :flowers: .
