The Obama worm!

A highschool prank, kind of funny in my opinion, although I think whoever did it is an idiot. :)

Gotta love the screenshot!

I also like this part of the story:

Adopting the role of detective, Thompson has some suggestions on likely suspects. "Given that Conficker source is probably not available, and if no one else ends up reporting this, there's some chance one of your students wrote it," he writes. "Find your smartest, geekiest, dweebiest kid, and look hard at him."

It's also worth noting that if the perps really did nail 9 million victims, they defeated their own purpose anyway, because they dd0sed themselves instantly. Have you got any idea how long it would take to enumerate 9 million pcs over the Internet? They're still on the first pass, for sure.
hehe :)
Nothing wrong with a little fun.
