My next personal computer probably will be a Mac. However, I’m not sure whether I should be amused, terrified, or ambivalent about this Mac worm author receives death threats story.
The beef over news of a worm targeting Macs, and the identity of the researcher who claimed to have created the malware, took an even stranger turn Wednesday as death threats were allegedly posted to his or her blog, which was then reportedly hacked.
These are pretty gruesome for just reporting on a computer bug…. C’mon.
