Here's some news...a GOOD Trojan Horse!

Just saw some news from a new site that just went live May 1st...Darkreading.com.

There is now a Trojan Horse that performs some jobs normally done by an admin;this Trojan looks for and deletes movies, Flash, and MP3s!!!

Known as Troj/Erazer-A, it replaces anything it finds and deletes with a copy of itself.

See full info here.

Re:Games:

Been drooling over the latest Lara Croft adventure, Legends. Promo pic from the game cover makes for great Desktop wallpaper. Was looking over the specs for it on the CompUSA site. This frickin' game needs 9.9 GIGS of hard drive real estate!!! That's outrageous. I have the first Tomb Raider adventure and never finished that one. How lucky I am that I don't want to waste all that time having fun drooling over Lara. 9.9 GB for a frickin' GAME!!! Yikes.

I would say if you have a need to delete such files there is something going wrong in your system. Either these files are allowed - no need to delete them - or they are disallowed - how do these files get into your systems ?

Would'nt it be the work of the admin to prevent that ?  ;)
