NEW NAZI SPAM ATTACK ALREADY PROGRAMMED

The next attack of the virulent computer worm launched by Germany's neo-Nazi party, the NPD, and which this week flooded computers all over the world with hate-spam, has already been programmed for ten days from now -- and it can turn off your computer's anti-virus protection systems, including Symantec and the Windows XP firewall, as well as the Windows update. German computer experts are predicting that the new attack, from a variation of the first virus --called Sober.P --will use colonized address books on your computers to launch millions and millions of new hate-spam messages, and are urging every computer owner to immediately update their virus protection, Der Spiegel Online reports today. The worm can send messages in both English and German.

"Not only would the addresses then get hammered with the spam e-mails, but they would appear to come from acquaintances of those on the receiving end," says the leading German newsweekly. As DIRELAND reported two days ago, the virus was launched by the neo-Nazi German National Party (NPD), Npd_ii an anti-Semitic, racist party which the government of Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder unsuccessfully tried to outlaw two years ago, and whose skin-head posses have been involved in numerous violent attacks on immigrants throughout Germany.

The new virus is basically a "refreshed" version of the old one. There isn't much you can do to stop this wave of hate spam -- the only people who can make a difference are the owners of infected computers, says Der Spiegel. The magazine cites Michael Dickopf, head of Germany's Federal Bureau of Internet Security, who says "It's incredibly important that these people bring their anti-virus software up to date." And by "these people" he means just about everyone. The base Sober virus doesn't negatively affect the computers it has infected, and so you may be unaware that your computer has been turned into a hate-spam spewing machine.

The neo-Nazi virus spreads with incredible rapidity. In the wake of my first post on this virus, I've received e-mails from people who report receiving hundreds of e-mails. Der Spiegel says that in just one 48-hour period, the publicly available e-mail addresses of its editors have received 25,000 hate-spam messages each. So far, only Windows operating systems have been infected -- including 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP and Windows Server 2003. Apple, Linux, Unix and other systems are not affected so far.

At the same time, the German Domestic Security Agency yesterday issued a report on a sharp rise in neo-Nazi crimes last year. Swastika The report said that there were 12,051 right extremist crimes reported in Germany in 2004, compared with 10,792 in 2003. Violent neo-Nazi crime cases also increased from 759 in 2003 to 776 last year. This coincided with a rise in the neo-Nazi NPD's membership, increased from 5,000 in 2003 to 5,300 in 2004.

Deutsche Welle quotes German Interior Minister Otto Schilly as saying, "The right-wing scene has stepped up efforts to lure children and young adults to their ranks...The NPD has even started canvassing in and outside schools. They launched a campaign codenamed 'Schoolyard' in which they were planning to distribute 50,000 CDs containing inflammatory neo-Nazi music to schoolchildren. Thanks to vigilant citizens, the authorities were alerted and were able to foil their plans."

As the NPD continues to grow, the implications of this NPD-launched computer virus are enormous. What if other hate groups start copying the NPD? The Internet will be awash in bigotry, and your  computer will play an unwitting part in spreading it -- so for goodness' sake UPDATE YOUR COMPUTER VIRUS PROTECTION NOW!

THE NEWSWEEK KORAN AFFAIR: "Isn't the reporter most at fault in the Newsweek mess, Michael Isikoff, now "charged with anti-Republican bias, the same fellow hailed by many on the right for his work in the Lewinsky scandal?" asks Editor & Publisher in a tart column by E&P's editor, Greg Mitchell. Indeed.

LOS ANGELES MAYORALTY: My friend Marc Cooper has another of his informative blogposts on  the meaning of yesterday's victory by Antonio Villaraigos in the L.A. race for mayor. It will tell you all you need to know about the results of a dispiriting, issue-less campaign, for as Marc notes, "None of The Above still beat out Villaraigosa and Hahn by a 2-to1 margin."
