yeah, a usenet virus doesnt pose a huge threat, but the fact that someones spreading one that way is still a little freaky and may give someone an idea, and before you know it, we'll be seeing it in emails. :rolleyes:

I really wonder how someone would come across that in the newsgroups anyways. Doubt there's much search for Bin Laden.

I used to use Usenet all the time before the web took off :p

But then again, I'm an old f@rt now :D

I'm just glad those Russians don't own any Macs :p

You don't need to search for it, a message with titled "Osama Found Hanged" is in probably every newsgroup. The message contains a .zip with an .exe in it.
