Hijackthis renaming.

Just came across this that a certain type of Vundo malware can hide it's self from the log unless you rename it. click here .
Is there no end to these malicious programers' abilities to make the home users life uncomfortable? Sad really, they're more to be pitied than scolded methinks.

Hackers are really smart, its a shame all that inteligence is going to waste and not being used for something constructive.

Hackers are no smarter than any other programmer. They just see writing malware as an easy way to 'prove themselves' or make money (browser hijack, ID theft etc). More sad than clever, really.

Writing constructive software requires considerably more time and effort.
