Virus attacks MSM

From CNN...

A fast-moving computer worm Tuesday attacked computer systems using Microsoft operating systems, shutting down computers in the United States, Germany and Asia.

Among those hit were offices on Capitol Hill, which is in the midst of August recess, and media organizations, including CNN, ABC and The New York Times. The Caterpillar Co. in Peoria, Illinois, reportedly also had problems.

Apparently the virus targeted organization noted for their self-righteous arrogance, rightly assuming they would neglect the mundane tasks of updating computer security, although I'm not exactly sure how Caterpillar fits in there.

Coverage: Outside the Beltway, Balloon Juice, PoliBlogger, Scared Monkeys
