Blaster worm linked to severity of blackout

Blaster worm linked to severity of blackout - Computerworld ""Exposure of communications flaws heightens concerns about security of the U.S. power grid."" Well, Duh! Any virus degrades the system it infects. Human or digital. Of course email itself is often a virus, even if you don't have a code virus attached. One more reason to use a Mac. At least stop using HTML aware amail programs, especially anything by Microsoft that allows one of your programs to talk to another without your express intervention. Check out Eudora.com if you need a proper email program... one that doesn't automatically do whatever a virus tells it to."
