    I was wondering.

    It seems like on the news or via the internet, there seems to be a constant barrage of P.C. viruses or worms that someone or persons keep hatching out on a regular basis.

    A couple times a year, I'll hear about some hacker getting tracked down and arrested, but the spread of these P.C. viruses seems to be on the increase.

    Who are the people or peoples that develop these illegal programs designed to snoop, or just create havoc with business and home P.C.'s?

    Is someone paying them to do this, or do they get personal gain in another form.

    Obviously these are brainy folks.

    Why can't they be tracked down? Seems like there is a Trojan this and a Trojan that being announced every couple weeks. Who's doing this?

    Seems also that this problem does validate a basic evil nature in man. In other words, man isn't getting better, but is just the same from the beginning of his creation. Some may desire and think that a world of U.S. Utopia is possible, but it's a "pipe" dream.

    Most of us who have had a smigeon or more of religion(biblical) know that this nature is only dealt with by an omnipotent hand. The rest will just try to be good and make everyone else try to be good, and still get P.C. virus attacks as reminder that there efforts are hopeless.

    Enough with the moral aspect.

    Who are these devious folks behind these disgusting, intrusive computer viruses? :poke:

    What I would suggest is when they track one of these scumbags down, they break every finger and bone in his hands so he can't do anymore programing, and no pain killer while they heal.

    I think the anti-virus makers are the one behind most of the viruses! :laugh:

    not a virus, but a guy that definitely needed to be stopped. I hate spammers.

    probably some little snot nosed teen that has nothing better to do than screw with peoples stuff. or on the other hand they could be trying to sniff out your credit card numbers or bank account numbers some people store on thier machines.
