A fast-spreading new worm that infects web servers running the popular message board software called phpBB was stopped in its track by its weakness; it used Google to spread.This new worm, named Santy.A, attempts to exploit web server running the phpBB message board by using Google to find these vulnerable versions. When the worm is able to infect a server it will deface the site to read "This site is defaced!!! NeverEverNoSanity WebWorm". Luckily Google quickly put a stop to this by not allowing these queries to be made. Thus stopping the worm right in its tracks.

Go Google! Glad it did not go far!

Maybe Norton needs advice?

Down in the bayou, Bubba called an attorney and asked, "Is it true they're suin' the cigarette companies for causing people to get cancer?
"Sure is Bubba. But why you asking?"
"Cause what I want to know is, I was thinking, can I sue Budweiser for all them ugly women I've slept with?"
