Ok then please explain the logic of inserting a worm when _everyone_ is going to
know it came from you _specifically_....

There isn't any. There _are_ worms that embed themselves in the registry and
attach to files. This has happened with .doc, .txt, and .nfo. What is to stop
someone from commanding attachment to base.c?

That is the nasty thing about viruses, trojans and worms. They are spread mostly
by accident, and unknowningly.

Think about what? If they are not using virus protection on their systems, then
they _deserve_ it. They are using Windows.. you _have_ to use virus protection,
and protection that is up to date no less.

I am not taking an obtuse view. I am simply giving Rafael the benefit of the
doubt. Remember.. innocent until proven guilty.
