    I have never heard of this T0rn virus, does anyone have information on this?
    Oh wait, are we talking about the T0rn rootkit?
    Even Sophos agrees this is a rootkit and not a virus.
    What utter junk, unless he actively broke into systems and installed
    t0rn on them he is guilty of nothing as far as I can tell (if he is we
    better arrest the OpenSSH team, OpenSSL team, the guy who wrote
    netcat, team TESO.....).
    My "faith" in the regular press to report security related issues has
    just been reaffirmed.
