Worm-writers insulting each other in source-code comments

Malware writers are releasing competing variants of current worms, each containing taunts deriding the coding skills of the others.

“And now the authors of MyDoom.G, spreading today, have included comments in the worm’s code insulting Netsky.

A similar message was found in Bagel J, also discovered today, which ended: “Don’t ruine our bussiness, wanna start a war?”

Netsky’s authors responded with the following message in Netsky.F: “Skynet AntiVirus – Bagle – you are a looser!!!”

“We have three different groups fighting here,” said Mikko Hypponen, director of antivirus research for F-Secure.”

I don’t know (or care) who’s going to win, but what I do know is that not one of these guys knows how to spell.

L-O-S-E-R (s).
