Nachi 2: The Return of Nachi. It sounds like one of those terrible ninja movies that are so fun to watch, but this superhero of a virus is your inbox’s best friend.
Nachi is a virus that is spreading across the internet right now cleaning and patching the MyDoom security hole. It eradicates the virus, then automatically downloads and installs the needed patches. Good thing too. Trojan horse, Mitglieder-H, is now on the loose exploiting the same MS security hole.
Advocating the use of this, and even celebrating it is supercharged with ethical concerns, but I for one thank the author.
Don’t get any wild ideas folks. This kind of thing could get you in serious trouble despite good intentions.
Nachi! Nachi! Nachi!
