"worm writers are not only attacking end users, they are also verbally insulting each other."

"Assiral. A was a 'good' worm — it was designed to search and destroy variants of the Bropia worm, which also used the MSN Messenger service to spread.
On infected systems, the Assiral.A worm displayed the message: "Larissa - Anti-Bropia - Freeing the world of Bropia".
In response, the FATSO worm's message says: "Hey LARISSA f**k off, you f**king n00b!.. Bla bla to your f**king Saving the world from Bropia, the world n33ds saving from you!"

"It sounds comical, but these are like gang members that are tagging neighbourhoods but using malware creations as a vehicle to communicate insults at one another,""
