Journal Journal: Slashdot editors reject Xbox emu trojan confirmation 5

After running a virus scan with updated NAV definitions, a trojan, namely badcon, was detected in the Xbox "emulator" featured in this story. I promptly submitted a story detailing this discovery, only to have it rejected within 10 minutes. The trojan does not appear to be particularly malicious, only causing system instability on unpatched Win9x boxes, but the fact that the Slashdot editors refused to inform their readers that a program they featured on their site contains a trojan is irresponsible to say the least.

I have passed my concerns on to Slashdot's parent company, VASoftware, (a publicly traded company) and I encourage everyone to do the same.
