Subject: M$ puts bounty out for Blaster and Sobigculprits

To write flawed code is one thing.  To write code to expose flawed code
is another thing.  To write code to take advantage of the flawed code and
to cause damage to machines all over the world is a crime and the person
who wrote that should be brought to justice.

My 2 cents.
