Th term virus is amazingly misused. What we are seeing with the VBS stuff
is simply a WORKING VBS PROGRAM. it does nothing that is not allowed to it
by the os, the language and by the user.
Of course with a 99% clueless rating I am hard pressed to find the worlds
view on this as anything but amusing in the same vien I got a good chuckle
over other news items of mass lemmingness.
