The Ghost net article was actually a very good read.

Thanks for your replies thus far.

Just read Paul's post on conficker from yesterday.

To quote "We can speculate all day and night about why we made a big deal
about this, but in the end I have to wonder, what else went on this week
(and especially today) that we all missed because we were to busy
Confickering?"

Guess I was having the same line of thought. And to answer Paul's question
on what I missed - Your post on Conficker! <dooh>

I had my 12 year old come home from school yesterday saying, "Don't
use your computers there's a virus going around!"

So we had a sit down education. needless to say when it gets to the
major media its a good thing, but it always gets overhyped.

Just mentioning the C word at this point makes me vomit in my mouth,
however, I am curious.

How does everyone feel all the media hype around it this week as
helped or hurt security awareness among the average user?

I personally feel it may have taken away attention from GhostNet
coverage which is a shame.

Thoughts?


Good Day
