But then the spammers would write a virus which infects all the
Microsoft™ Windows® computers out there and acts as a distributed
network cell. The spammer could then control the cells remotely, and
divvy up the work of decoding pages.
Much in the same sense as a "setiathome" project gone bad.
I wonder if MyDoom could be useful for something other than spam?
The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of their folly,
is to fill the world with fools.
