National politics being what they are, the news in our part of the world is rather narrow and self-absorbed these days. Thus, the media here wasn’t too impressed by a story out of China a few days ago about a piece of malware called Swearing Trojan. Named for some Chinese profanity embedded in comments in the code, Swearing Trojan is big news in China, where it continues to unleash havoc, even after the original perpetrators were arrested.
Various observers have already noted that the techniques are portable and will likely show up on this side of the Pacific soon.
