The Virus That Ate The (Computer) World

Zotob, a series of viruses and worms, has apparently caused a bit o' havok with some big company computer services. It managed to send me home 30 minutes early today, as we got an urgent message to shut down and stay off while IT figured out how to stop this.

I love my Mac. There's just something about zero viruses for OS X that just makes me a grinning idiot whenever the PC side of the house gets shafted again and again and again. Aren't I a meanie?

Patch control, patch control, patch control.

All my servers are up to date this afternoon.

RTO,

My [insert naughty words here] employer-provided Winblows machine won't play the video format, so I'll have to watch it when I get home to my real computers. :-)

I know that no operating system is perfect, but OS X passes the "no swearing while trying to get real work done" test. That works for me.
