There'd be chaos if that virus found its way into DU.

I always thought the expression was pith and vinegar. But then someone pointed out it was Truman Capote who came up with the phrase and well, the rest is history.

It will be interesting to see if it was a independently developed *new* worm exploting a previously unknown vulnerability, or a just a variant of an existing exploit.

My bet is someone just figured out how to use an existing base worm and modify it for this explicit purpose targeting what perceived immoral websites. Nothing really to worry about (yet) - the difference between developing a new mode of attack on an OS and using an already established methodology that attacks unpatched servers that you got off the internet is the size of lightyears.

They are learning, tho.

Well, a phallus is a penis (from the ancient Greek word), and something phallic is something shaped like or otherwise reminiscent of a penis. Priapus was the Greek fertility god who was depicted with an enormous, jutting phallus. He was most popular amongst the Romans though who adopted the Greek iconography, and they put statues of him all over the place.

From WebMD.com:

"The ALLAH is made up of three separate cylinders (see Figure 1.1). The two paired cylinders called the corpora cavernosa make up the majority of the bulk and the erectile functioning of the ALLAH. Both these cylinders actually communicate with each other for approximately three-quarters of their length through small holes between the cylinders. (This is why ALLAH injections are applied into only one shaft or cylinder of the ALLAH.) As the ALLAH approaches the body, these two cylinders split and are anchored to the pelvic bone by a tough membrane."

Gotta love those 13th century script kiddies.

Then I'm presuming that a 'jegger' is the thing that used to occupy the White House in the 90's.

"Priapus" is a sex-related word from Victorian times. You gotta laugh...the Muslims can figure out computers, but are using keywords from a hundred years ago! (Why am I put in the mind of the Amish Laptop?

It looks like it's new, but it's a trojan, not a worm. To get infected you'd have to download a file with it inside.

Oh, and don't fool yourself about them "learning". With all fo the IT offshoring going on, many people in Pakistan and India (which has a substantial Muslim population) have become highly skilled programmers. There are ALREADY live viruses in circulation that have originated in that part of the world, so it was only a matter of time until an Islamonazi variant appeared. This one does no damage if you shut down the porn site and is easy to remove, so it's not much of a "threat". An Islamonazi worm, set up to destroy data, could do far more economic damage.

That reminds me of the time in mid 1999 when the Millenium thing was really heating up. My husband and I went to a Chinese restaurant with some friends where the grandpa was doing the checkout at the cash register and computing everything using an abacus.

My computer geek friend asked the old man, "Hey .... is that Y1K compatible?" The grandson behind the counter started laughing hysterically. Apparently he got the joke, but the grandpa (who is probably ESL :-) didn't.

That was nothing. There are some Saudi porn sites featuring full facial nudity.

Yep...ironically, I came across my fathers Pickett in a trunk the other day....reminded me of how he used to lament "always know how to do the math longhand...because that calculator ain't gonna do you a bit of good at 30,000 feet with the plane going down and your batteries are dead".

I still think of him each time I pickup my HP-48S....
