Hackers have unleashed a new malware strain that targets Linux-based systems.

The Linux/Shishiga malware uses four different protocols (SSH, Telnet, HTTP and BitTorrent) and Lua scripts for modularity, according to an analysis of the nasty by security researchers at ESET.

Hi belham2.

Are you sitting in a comfortable chair? Wink Yes? Ok, here it goes:
Why go through the trouble of learning LUA when bash can do the job! Laughing

Sorry to break the news to you, but any computer language can be used for
good -- or for evil... C has been used in computer viruses for a long time,
but the malware kiddos could use bash, python, agena, J, etc., really any
kind of "run-time" interpreter that's on the victim's computer.

Sleep well now! Twisted Evil

Properly speaking, they're not hackers, they're crackers.

Wait a minute.

Those virus-attack-vectors are all doable, but I use Puppies.

And Flash said having a puppy or two is safe.

I know he did.

I'll find it somewhere in the archives.

I know I am safe.

Puppy=safety from all bad things on the Internet.

Because we run 'em frgual.

And in RAM.

So when we get something funny going on.

We definitely no save on exit.

Thus, next boot we start freshy fresh new again.

Puppy reborn, as our paleo Pelo would opine.

Flash told us we would be safe.

Dammit, archives our so hard to....Pelo, need Pelo's help

Only good, honest people make and have puppies, right Cool

Pelo find so many old puppies still alive, all run by wholesome humans.

God has a puppy too

Must be.....
