Mr. William H. Gates III, the legendary co-founder of
Microsoft Corp. has recently talked about the viral nature
of the GPL, which spreads open source software like a flu.
Now it has been confirmed that he was right all the time!
The free ClamAV software already detects the GNU Public
Licence file as a virus!
Oh yes, I got myself a good laugh!
This revelation clearly shows how and why Mr. Gates came to
be the richest man on Earth: he has incredible foresight and
can tell the signs of time well in advance.
Might be a new heuristic feature or a super advanced sandbox function that
caugh this nasty text file!
I tried uploading this malware to http://www.virustotal.com but still only
ClamAV detects it ;-)
