What do you guys think of this, Could this be what we're looking at in a few months or is it just vaporware?

I really hope this isn't something coming soon. EVERY one uses internet, so this virus would essentially spread everywhere. This would be a reason to stop the internet, stop the free trade of information. This would just mean our web browsers become more bloated to stop these 'hybrid worms'.

We could always disable javascript though Smile

You don't know what you're talking about, the internet can never be disabled.

As for the worm, it sounds like it's all based on javascript. Noscript = no worm.

Does noscript block script access for Flash?

yeah, apparently it won't even download the flash applications if they aren't trusted.

Yup. No JS, no Flash, XSS warnings, etc. NoScript owns. :happy:

Well, I can only say: Who actually cares if Google Analytics run their scripts? Ignore the bar, block the JS from the rest of the site, and be happy that you're not letting JS run when you don't want it to. Sometimes, you have to deal with a little annoyance in order to browse safer.

this worm mutates and can learn new exploits. What happens if it comes self concious?? and takes over the internet?? what if it killed us all?? Shock

but seriously it could really do some damage....

Yes, it wouldn't disable the Internet, it would just make things a lot harder, since we wouldn't have domains, and would have to use IP addresses.

if it does and does somehow become self concious and decides to kill us all.... infects the russian and us army servers and launches all nukes.

the source code would be worth loads for phishers and advertisers.
think: a worm that can infect thousands so you just make it so that it has a small banner on everysite it infects with rental space for ads.

the only genuinely challenging part of making that would be reading in the secuna reports, the rest wouldnt be too hard. although itd be difficult to spread to the clientside in most cases, IE and FF block dangerous JS

the worm could make all our ases be belong to him. but really its just a worm that can read secuna. i doubt its JS are that advanced such that it could get past todays browsers and servers' antivirii.

Now I REALLY know you don't know what you're talking about.

The internet has NOTHING to do with domain names. Zero, zip. Domain names are merely an "enhancement" to make things easier. Take the server in my profile, it doesn't use a domain name, but since you can access it from your internet-connected computer, it is thus a part of the "internet".

The internet is just a big-fuckin'-interconnected-glob-of-networks. Nothing more. If you have two computers connected with a cable, you have an "internet", albeit, a very small one (technically an "intranet", assuming the "internet" still exists).
