Yet Another Reason to Dump Windows

(via The Laporte Report)

Image virus spreads via chat:

According to the Internet Storm Center, the victims received AOL Instant Messenger messages that directed them to Web sites that hosted the dangerous JPEG images.

The instant messages read: “Check out my profile, click GET INFO!” When visited, the Web site automatically sends malicious code embedded in the JPEG image to the computer, Ullrich said. Once infected with the code, the computer sends the same message to other contacts in the instant-messenger list.

The code also installs a back door that can give hackers remote control over the infected computer.

Can anyone give me a compelling reason for using Windows?

Some Debate Questions for George W. Bush

I’d like to see Dubya try to answer these…

Of God and War (soul stealing registration required):

  • Do you really believe that there are fewer terrorists plotting against America today than there were before you began the invasion of Iraq?

  • Your version of Christianity supports and blesses preventive war. What relation is this to the Christianity preached by the pope and by mainstream Protestants who oppose preventive war?

  • Since you obviously did not anticipate the troubles in Iraq, what do you plan to do to the incompetent advisers who misled you and are responsible for the deaths of more than 1,000 American G.I.’s and 20,000 Iraqi civilians? Or do you not see an accountability problem? President John F. Kennedy fired the people who led him into the Bay of Pigs. Why do you not do likewise?
