12. And I would agree that if they are randomly infecting millions of PCs, they should stop.

But just because a system can scale up to that level doesn't mean it is doing so. Hell, I could write a computer virus tomorrow and it would be capable of being deployed to millions of PCs. The potential is always there, that's part of the Information Age we live in.

They're still talking about 'control implants by groups'. What groups? A terrorist cell in Pakistan? A drug cartel in Mexico? Curious minds would want to know that so as to have a fuller picture.

A ton of bricks, a ton of feathers. It's still gonna hurt.
