"Microsoft Saddles Up the Posse!
I saved the best story for last. I am NOT making this up! Microsoft
itself, the richest software company ever, famous for having a cash
hoard of tens of billions of dollars, famous for spending billions
of dollars developing Windows and yet still can't code its way out
of a soggy tissue, is offering a reward:
"Microsoft Rounds Up Posse to Nab Conficker
""In a worldwide effort to bring down what experts warn may be the
worst malware now facing the Internet, big names from the computer
industry, academia and law enforcement are teaming up to go after
the Conficker worm....Microsoft is coordinating an effort to cut
the worm off at its head -- offering a $250,000 reward for
information resulting in the arrest and conviction of those
responsible for launching Conficker on the Internet...""
"I guess if they actually do track down and punish the author of
Conficker, the eleventeen-hundred thousand other Windows worms,
Windows Trojan Horses, Windows viruses, and other Windows malware
will all vanish."
