    In your mind.
    Something about this was posted before, i believe.

    But i found the ending part of the article kind of funny:

    "The Conficker botnet is still active, but is closely watched by security researchers. The infected computers have so far been used to make money in ordinary ways, pumping out spam and spreading fake antivirus software."

    Some of the comments are interesting too:

    "I live on the east coast.I will be glad to pay my airfare if I am allowed to beat each of them with a baseball bat until they are uunconcious and crippled."

    "If they don't go to prison for at least 40 years, then I'll pay Mike's airfair plus buy the bat for him to beat them senseless."

    "Not if I get there first with my bat"
