There are some pieces of malware over the years that made one scratch their head. Like the “stoned” virus. Not really sure what the point of that was. Another example is this annoying one that causes printers to run amok. This particular virus that attacks printers is ridiculous.
Oh no, please…stop…the madness.
From Ars Technica:
A recently unleashed piece of malware is wreaking havoc in some enterprises by causing all their printers to print gibberish until they run out of paper, researchers from Symantec said.
“The impact is global and effecting approximately 80 print servers,” an admin of one Fortune 500 company wrote in an online forum dedicated to the print bomb explosion. “The print job names were all 15 characters in length and unique. The print jobs were all garbage print, as if it was opening the .exe and printing the garbage text.”
Not really sure what halfwit would come up with this virus. Rather childish at best.
