Bugs & Viruses "Lately I've been blogging quite a bit on the state of on-line journalism. One aspect of that topic that I haven't touched on for awhile is the way in which a story breaks, builds, morphs and spreads electronically. The recent announcement of the Backdoor.Ginwui virus provides an interesting opportunity to do this once again, in order to see who addressed the story and how (including by me), and what, if anything, it all means." OSNews did not report on this Backdoor.Ginwui virus.

The word virus and trojan seems to be used interchangeably by the author, and the story doesn't go anywhere, nor havy any point at the end of it.

His article in summary: someone found a security hole, and people make more of a fuss out of it than necessary.

Big deal.
