    To follow up on this, slashdot has another news article on this. It seems the Lycos site was not hacked. It's just under havy load because of sites like slashdot reporting about it. Those reports about hacked screensavers seem to come from the spam companies themselves to slow down distribution of the screensaver.

    In contrary, it seems the screensaver shut down several spam sites completely instead of just bringing them to 95% of their capacity.
    main() { int O[!0<<~-!0]; (!0<<!0)[O]+= ~0 +~(!0|!0<<!0); printf("a function calling "); }
