On another forum, there is disscussion of people having their computers sent back to them from an apple technician with a "666" (or "sevendust") virus. The virus most likely is one on of the computers apple uses for repairs, and is infecting repaired hardware sent back to the owners. This 666 virus recently showed up on my computer almost immediately after I installed OS 9 from the "Up-to-date" program. Agax took care of the problem, but I'm curious as to how a virus can infect a CD. Or did I pick it up from somewhere else?
