Bugs & Viruses We're well and deep into April 1 now, and if you were to believe some of the reports and hype on the internet, we should've all been paying in bottle caps right about now. As any sane person already saw coming, the Windows worm Conficker didn't do anything. It just kind of sat there, patiently mocking all those who did not update their machines properly.

Yeah.. I will blame people for not updating their system, visiting pr0n and warez sites then receiving virii which disables security updates, using pirated Windows, thinking they're smarter than the hacks out there so they don't need anti-virus or updates, etc.

OK fine your arguement about the hole shouldn't be there in the first place is true, but if we waited until every product was 100% bug free we'd still be using Windows 1.0, we'd have not have moved away from the first kernel release in Linux or have wonderful products like the iPhone or TiVo.
