First PC Virus Spreads to Humans

Worms 231

Davidlost writes "A PC-to-human virus, known as Malwarlaria.B is spreading in humans after a mass spamming in the early hours of Friday morning. It spreads through contact with keyboards on infected PCs. Be afraid, be very afraid."

Oh, tee-hee, it is to laugh (5, Insightful)

MoxCamel (20484) | about 9 years ago | (#12112619)

1992 called, and wants its joke back.

Note to staff: The thing about April 1st jokes is that they should be subtle enough to catch the reader unawares. There's nothing subtle or clever about a constant slew of joke stories, most of which wouldn't fool even my PHB. Consider trying for a ratio of about 5 real stories to 1 "fool" story next year.

(Yeah, I'm being a curmudgeon, so fsck'ing mod me. I like a good April Fool story as much as the next geek, but it stops being funny after a barrage.)

Dilbert_ (17488) | about 9 years ago | (#12112704)

1992? More like 1970... Wanna bet there's some story floating around about infectious punch-cards somewhere?

Re:Oh, tee-hee, it is to laugh (3, Funny)

sumdumass (711423) | about 9 years ago | (#12112825)

Well, infectious puchcards are more realistic then a computer virus.

Just imagine a worker with hepetitus and doesn't know it because he hasn't seen a doctor since the last cocain party he was at. Now he was handling the cards, aven after sneezing,touching his eyses and mabey some other body parts with fluids. Not get a paper cut form one of the puch cards he was handling?

I have no idea if that could even hapen but it sounds liek it could. Kind of like getting aids from drinking after someone with it.

Re:Oh, tee-hee, it is to laugh (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 9 years ago | (#12112706)

Yeah, whenever a "story" has previously appeared in Weekly World News, it's not going to fool anyone.

As far as the 5 to 1 - yeah, good idea, cause then the Tiger Woods as Apple spokesman might have fooled a lot of people...

I couldn't have said it better myself. (3, Insightful)

cbreaker (561297) | about 9 years ago | (#12112818)

The last few years I've looked forward to trying to guess which Slashdot story was the fake one on April 1st. I think Last Years was pretty good, but I don't really remember.

But when you try to do it over and over like this it's really stupid and takes away all the fun of it.

Slashdotters are lame (4, Insightful)

mollog (841386) | about 9 years ago | (#12112826)

The people who insist on pointing out the obvious fact that these 'news articles' are in fact, gags, are lame. Not only are they humor impaired, they lack the wit to form a thoughtful criticizism of the gags. Please note that there is a difference between being discerning and being critical. Many don't get that disctinction and think themselves clever when they are able to find fault. It's too bad so many of us can't attempt even a minimal retort in the spirit that the slashdot admins are showing. Come on people, are we so weak minded we can't even think up a clever response to this stuff?

Re:Oh, tee-hee, it is to laugh (4, Interesting)

_xeno_ (155264) | about 9 years ago | (#12112836)

Personally, I think Slashdot should do a total of two April 1st stories. One should be a Slashdot prank, and be done at or around 6AM GMT. Something like "removing the ability to post anonymously" or "due to an FBI subpeona, we will be retroactively displaying the actual poster of all AC posts starting April 15th" - something that's mildly plausible but clearly not really happening.

(Actually, they already did the first one. It wasn't that funny because it was buried among a deluge of other April 1st stories.)

The second story should be done some time later in the day, and should be a wrap-up of the various funny April Fools jokes done on other sites. Simply collecting and reporting on every single April Fools joke out there is, as the parent post says, simply a barrage of pointlessness.

Yes, we know, it's April 1st. It's deadly obvious. A good April 1st joke requires someone to look at the calendar and say "oh, it's April 1st!" So far, that hasn't really applied.

Note 2: Some countries are no longer in "fool" time and as a consequence, I was able to see this "news" article for what it was quite clearly!

Re:Fatal Virus Spreads to /. editors (4, Insightful)

TheViffer (128272) | about 9 years ago | (#12112794)

The only day of the year when "First Post" messages are more informative then the article.

Hmm. Seems like first posts actually are more informative, on a regular basis...

A) That this hoax will spread around and find it's way into my inbox daily for the next 10 years...*sigh* set Spam Filter: If messageText="Malwarlaria" then Bounce message.

B) Eventually some jerk will make a real (even if just computer) virus of that same name.

Infected users have been spotted mass-mailing commercial advertisements to residents and buisnesses alike to "enl4rg3 th3ir g1r7h and l3ng7h"
Some instances have been reported of the infected gathering in large numbers, known as Destroyers of Sells (DoS), at major corporations and retailers to block the the doors allowing noone in. Symptoms include slow performance, to much chatter (blondes excepted), and zombie like movements demanding the brains of a v14gra man.

it's definitely AFTER 12 noon (1)

In much of the /. reading world and more importanly according to the /. system clock and I was always told that April Fool's pranks played after noon work in reverse, they make the teller the April Fool.

NotoriousQ (457789) | about 9 years ago | (#12112686)

Phew. I was afraid that those 802.11 chips I had embedded into myself made me more susceptible to the virus. But seeing how it only spreads through the keyboard...... .....uh oh...... I knew I should have implanted a usb keyboard driver chip as well. Well I will go find a plastic bubble / faraday cage combo, and will sit there untill this thing blows over.

I will see you later.

It spreads through contact with keyboards on infected PCs

that's not all that spreads through keyboards. apparently, there's a little-known (but rampant!) problem circulating throughout the workaday world. the only ones who know the true scope of this ever-growing malaise are IT support staff. what is it? the official name pebcak, in l33tsp33k referred to as id10-t.

Apparently there was a bmw ad in a british newspaper advertising "the worlds first hands free steering wheel due to a EU ban on right hand drive cars".

Also on bbc radio 2 they pretended that a memorial to the queen mum was going to be lump of granite placed in pall mall. Lots of of people got quite upset about it, funny really.

Today was the most boring day on slashdot, with stories that 10 year olds would not believe. And we are supposed to call them april fool's jokes?

It's time to vaporize all this nonsense: I'm tired of being yanked around by every previously-credible site I visit daily. Put a duck in the header and knock it off.

Unplug your keyboard.

Unplug your telephone.

Pull out the battery to your cell phone.

Pull out the battery to your beeper.

Take a deep cleansing breath and think about fluffy bunnies in a verdant field of flowers.

Say "I wish it was April" five times while walking widdershins around your Hybrid Car.

And you're cured!
