We haven’t had one of these in a while: a computer virus hit several big corporations today, including Disney and Comcast. No major work disruptions were reported, just annoyance by email boxes overflowing with spam. If you get an email with ‘Here you have’ in the subject line, do not click on the link that alleges to be a pdf document, that would spread the virus further. For the conspiracy theorists out there – this was not an attack on media companies. According to ABC News, Procter & Gamble, AIG and NASA were also affected. I personally thought the nation’s space agency would have better anti-virus protection.
