Expert says fears of '10/10/10' virus unfounded

10 October 2010

Computer security firm Sophos has said that computer users need not pay attention to rumours about a "10/10/10" virus that is to strike computers at 10:00 am on October 10, 2010, AFP has reported. "The truth is that there is malicious software which triggers every day of the year -- so worrying about one particular date or time is actually counter-productive, as it implies that you should take less care on other dates," Sophos' Graham Cluley wrote in a blog post. "The 10/10/10 rumour, just like the 03/03/03 one, is utter codswallop."
