As I have previously said about another security-related item, I don't like seeing these kinds of reports on osnews. Not that I'm trying to deny such malware exist. I just don't like the almost lauding tone of the linked articles. But that's just me.

Some, not all, malware can be seen as a failure of the underlying Operating System itself. Seeing one's own failures is a good start to self-improvement. You never know, one day, someone may be able to solve some specific problem once and for all.

Please do not suppress the knowledge about such problems. It already is on page 2, don't blast it into oblivion.
