one virus my grandfather and i dealt with in our systems and friends systems was the good little bugger known as NYB. gotta love those old boot sector viri. a quick fdisk /mbr would nuke that bizitch. ah the days...

i wonder if we can officially call smitfraud virus popular based on its infection rate. most clients i see with viri have smitfraud or a variant of it.

we used to have a saying, "dont be sloppy with your floppy"
