It’s April 1 and the Conficker computer worm virus-thing is supposed to hit the planet. I seriously considered not turning on my computer today… even turning off the modem… maybe even canceling my high-speed Internet service.

While this isn’t street crime in the neighborhood, computer viruses are a crime. There is a $250,000 reward for a “Conficker arrest and conviction.” Even the FBI Cyber Division put out a statement.
