A couple days ago, I started getting dozens of e-mails every day from both the FBI and the CIA, saying that my computer had been caught visiting dozens of illegal sites. As a consequence, I was to download, fill out, and return an attached file, or I could expect to be arrested.
A lot of people were complaining about this as the latest virus/worm going around, but I preferred to look at it more positively. The idea that the FBI and CIA were cooperating to this extent could very well mean that former Clinton Administration official and 9/11 Commssioner Jamie Gorelick’s infamously stupid and virtually suicidal “wall of separation” between domestic and foreign intelligence agencies is no more.
Some people look at computer viruses and feel threatened. I choose to look at them and feel safer.
