Probability of date viruses on 01/01/2000? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

My assumption is that y2k is also appealing for virus programmers. Does anybody know of the existance of such a date virus? What are the odds that such a virus remains undetected?

Not nearly as high as the probability that new ones celebrating the big date will be written in the coming months.

Of course the mischief-makers will jump into the confusion. And the terrorists, rioters, looters, etc. Some warped ppl will think "Aha, golden opportunity to incite mayhem." xxxx
