The comments were somewhat interesting but the article was really a yawn. I would be interested to know what the malware actually did (I have seen a partial analysis) and any realistic assessment of how much damage it did (how many fools were there). The author claims to be a "technology expert," but it sounds like he may not have much knowledge beyond things that have been personally "blessed" by Bill Gates.


And I would like to second what others have said about the fact that phishing schemes affect everybody and always have. Using a decent browser may make life a little harder for the phishermen, but they schemes certainly are not OS dependant.
