    The Heavyweight Virus

    I just read the article on it at http://bbspot.com/News/2003/02/heavyweight.html

    It's got me kind of scared: I mean, how can a virus physically damage a HDD, even managing to break it's platters?!

    And the whole idea of not needing action by the user to infect files, this one is downright scary..

    What are your thoughts on this?

    BBspot is a satirical news and comedy source and meant to be funny. If you are easily offended, gullible or don't have a sense of humor we suggest you go elsewhere.
