Comment Re:More likely it is another publicity stunt (Score 0, Redundant) 244

I agree. Personally, I'm not certain if the "Mac Worm Author" produced a working worm. Not that I don't believe it could be done, with time and energy, I just find it suspect that anyone would first pre-announce that they will have a working Mac Worm in a few days. Then when they are suppose to offer up the proof of such a thing, they disappear and claim they fear for their 'anonymous' life.

So far, there has been no proof that the worm exists or even works. The "guy?" has been criticized, not just by Mac fans, but security professionals and even newspaper reports for being irresponsible. Then supposedly, as a security expert and researcher, the "guy?" has his website hacked, the decides to pack his bag and go hide. But not before spreading a ton of misinformation and accusations. All just enough to keep people in a tizzy, and legitimate his claim as a Mac OS X author, when he still hasn't provided proof.

I say the title should read, "Author of the Alleged Mac OS X Worm, Claims Death Threats" It's far more accurate.
