W32/Bagle-H has an interesting thing: "W32/Bagle-H sends itself as a password protected ZIP file that is not detected by this identity. However, when unzipped by the user the worm will be detected by Sophos Anti-Virus at the user's desktop." - this would have the added effect of more social engineering intrigue, although perhaps it would also add an extra step to the people's "click-open-boom" mentality that helps viruses to spread so fast - don't give people a chance to think about it.
VoxPolitics has lot sof links I want to catch up on. In reverse order:
- New government portal looks much nicer than the old one, and about time too.
- DowningStreetSays.com reports on what the PM's official spokesman is on about today.
- Reflections on the Emerging Technology Conference
- Political Survey and ritual disembowelment of statistics arguments, which makes me almost excited to do statistical analysis next year
Meanwhile, Technorati looks interesting as a kind of "Google of blogging" site.
