Gizmodo Got It Right on Conficker

Gizmodo of hate seems to have a new blog feature where they explain things rather than just report new gadgets and regurgitate rumors from other sources. And this post on the Conficker virus is pretty good that all mobile warriors should pay attention to. I agree with their assessment on the future of virus.

In fact, with such a network the virus author(s) seems to be creating and no security expert appears to know what it is suppose to do scares me. It doesn't matter if you're a OS X or Windows users, this affects everyone.

What also is frightening is the rule of "one up". Someone will always be around later to do better (in the virus sense, I mean "worse"). Could there be a day when a virulent computer code appear on the Internet or network without attracting anyone's attention?
