In today's news:
virus forces three London hospitals into computer shutdown
"Three London Hospitals shut down their computer systems on Tuesday in response
to a computer virus infection.
"The infection at Barts and London Trust was reportedly caused by the Mytob
worm, which contains built-in spyware functionality. Mytob spreads by email
and has the ability to plant backdoor software on compromised Windows PCs."

because of this Microsoft 'incident'? It's not the first of this kind.
