    I guess Bruce was right?

    The sky is falling the sly is falling. Please search for the stories as I was piecing together a lot of different reports.

    Just because you can doesn't mean you should. This applies to making babies, hacking, and youtube videos.

      At least they owned up to it. Most of these companies have a lot to lose reputation wise and I think it was the smart move to do so. Actually it should drive home to all that even the most secure are vulnerable. While we are on this road do you think this will lead ISP's to force anti-malware compliance on their users.

      In other words if you want to use our network, we want to scan your computer first, and every time you connect. Or we need to verify through some scan that you are running anti-malware software and have all the necessary patches. While a slippery slope in multiple areas legality isn't one of them.
