Very interesting read...
It's kind of a joke. It could be run on basically any OS.
F-Secure has their pants in a wad over every little thing. These are just Monad scripts running on the system, just like batch files, perl scripts, Ruby scripts, Cygwin bash scripts etc.
Its going to happen anyway, viruses aren't going to dissapear from existence just because Microsoft have updated their Windows security.
Thank you. You are spot on. Here's a good read on this (non) issue: http://www.leeholmes.com/blog/MonadAndTheFirstVistaVirus.aspx
I liked this quote by Adam Barr - "Are you concerned that every version of Windows has the dreaded "cmd /c rmdir c:\ /s" virus in it? If not, then you have no reason to be concerned about Monad."
I thought it was MSH they where targeting MS Command Shell, or is it one and the same thing?
Yes, it is. "Monad" is the codename for MSH.
It appears the news sites jumped the gun a little too early...
