    The "WEP crack" fallout will be interesting to watch also.

    In theory under the new law anyone whos computer was infected by
    nimda/codered could be imprisoned for life -- the new law says nothing
    about intent. So basically we would have a few million microsoft windows
    users serving life sentences...
