Pro-Linux virus infecting companies

Author: JT Smith

MSNBC.com reports: "A computer virus that poses as a
Shockwave movie and urges victims to install the
Linux operating system has infected at least four
Fortune 500 companies according to antivirus
firms. Known as 'Prolin,' or pro-Linux, the bug
politely places instructions on how to recover
from infections on the victim's computer.
Experts are concerned that it might spread
quickly around the Internet."
