M$ && Sending files back? [was: SOT: w2k alters mbr]

| Wasn't there an incident with Kazaa recently where
| a bogus update was sent out which disabled a competitor's
| software?

There have been a couple of stories on slashdot  recently  about  the
growing virus wars.  It seems that some virus writers have learned to
include code that knows how to find anti-virus programs  and  disable
them.  It's pretty funny, if you're not a victim.

Anyone remember the old Core  Wars  game?   (In  which  a  number  of
programs  are loaded into the memory of a virtual machine that has no
memory protection, and the interpreter does a round-robin  emulation.
The  last  program  left alive was the winner.  A decade ago this was
just an interesting intellectual exercise ...)
