Mystery virus hits 15 million PCs around the world

More than 3,000 British organisations – including hospitals, the Ministry of Defence, councils, and what are described as "well-known firms" – have been hit. They and the hundreds of thousands of other victim organisations in countries such as the US, Russia, China and India are now bracing themselves for the virus to be triggered and do whatever malicious work it has been designed to do.

Wake the Flock Up's Commentary:

Who wants the blog-o-sphere silenced right now?

Had it not been for the internet and the blogs, Israel would have succeeded in selling the idea that the attack on Gaza was all HAMAS' fault.

When Tzipi Livni got up and stated flat out that there were no civilian casualties in Gaza. she did so because she honestly believed that all contradictory information would be blocked from reaching the world.

She was wrong. Photos of dead children were already in wide circulation even as she stood at the podium.

Israel has invested much of the money they get from the taxpayers to buy up and control the media (see BBC). This PR disaster over the last month has finally made them realize that the precious control over the information of the world has been lost; the high ground in the war for the minds of the people is here on the net. If Israel cannot control that (and they are trying) then they will lose the war of public opinion.

So, to repeat; who wants the blog-o-sphere silenced right now?
