The Blaster virus was an unabashed attempt to strike a blow against Microsoft and point out lapses in security. It targeted Windows XP and 2000 systems and used them to coordinate an attack on windowsupdate.com that was intended to bring down the site. Embedded in the virus was the text: "billy gates why do you make this possible ? Stop making money and fix your software!!" An 18 year old from Minnesota was arrested for the attack.
