Nothing is sacred anymore and the recent malware attack on goody-goody Wikipedia brings this fact home more blatantly than a bad rabbi-priest joke. In spammed email messages, recipients were lured to download a “security update” from Windows via a particular article page in Wikipedia. Not surprisingly the said article is about the infamous WORM_BLASTER.
Living up to its good name, Wikipedia acted with due haste and deleted the misleading warning texts and link added to the article. Its editors also cleaned Wikipedia’s archive to completely eradicate the threat. More information about the attack can be found in this link.
