The internet isn't as friendly as when it first started. Then, antivirus software was an option. Now it's already a must.

What complicates things are hoaxes that makes us see ghosts.

Wonder if anyone can come up with a near-to-perfect solution to all this.

When you talk about "Stardust," what comes to mind is something romantic, dreamlike, and something that's magical in a nice, feel-good way. In the story of Peter Pan, it's what helps kids fly when they're happy.

So stardust is good right? Generally, yes ... until some whacko comes along and ruins it for us. Read this,

Stardust virus lands on OpenOffice

Researchers at Kaspersky Lab have spotted what they believe is the first virus for OpenOffice, the open-source rival to Microsoft's Office productivity suite.

The virus, dubbed Stardust, is capable of infecting OpenOffice and StarOffice, which is sold by Sun Microsystems, a Kaspersky Lab researcher wrote on the Russian company's Viruslist Web site on Tuesday.

"Stardust is a macro virus written for StarOffice, the first one I've seen," the researcher wrote. "Macro viruses usually infect MS Office applications."

The pest is written in Star Basic. It downloads an image file with adult content from the Internet and opens that file in a new document, according to Kaspersky's posting.

So far, Stardust is a proof-of-concept virus, which means that it was created to demonstrate that an OpenOffice virus is possible. The virus has not been sent out in the wild and is not actually attacking people's systems.

The story is different for Microsoft Office applications: A yet-to-be-patched security hole in Word has been exploited in at least one recent cyberattack.

A new "macro virus" is like a blast from the past. Viruses have evolved significantly. Boot sector pests were around between 1986 to 1995, followed by macro viruses that exploited early Microsoft Windows operating systems, according to security company F-Secure. The advent of e-mail subsequently propelled e-mail viruses such as the "I Love You" and the Anna Kournikova virus.

OT: Nagtaka ako sa title ng post, "StarDust: When It's Not Good for You." Fyi, stardust is street for cocaine.

Ako naman ang naisip ko nung nabasa ko yung word na "stardust", yung song ni Jose Mari Chan na "Perfect Christmas".  Yun pala virus ang tinutukoy ni rma2003.:)

Yes, but some have referred to it also as stardust.

Amazing how something good has been twisted by many today. I guess this is just a way to get back what has been perverted and restored back to its proper use.
