I don't know the background of SWEN, but most probably it would come
from America or Europe, since there's where we find the most computers.

Cracking is bad. Hacking is good.

McAfee still indicates "origin unknown"

Yepper, the probability of it for being from a country like U.S.A. or a
country in Europe is quite big.

U.S.A. got like 200 million inhabbitants?
Norway got 4.5 million

There's then a bigger chance for the virus coming from U.S.A. than Norway.

And another thing:

Q: What's the most irritating thing about mail and USENET?

Don't use Outlook Express, use another e-mail client that support the
standard of USENET. Proper posting! Makes posts easier to read.

Some good clients:
Mozilla <URL: http://www.mozilla.org/>
pan <URL: http://www.rebelbase.com/> (can't remember url exactley)

Do you figure in the fact that it contains the string "... by Begbie"
and reportedly, in a previous version, "Slovakia" was mentioned
(Gibe.b).

Or this, also purportedly by Begbie:

....it might be from Slovakia even though statistically it
would not (it only takes one computer to do this).

As I said, I don't know the background. A vile guess from me, but the
probability of a virus coming from either America or Europe is
relativley high.

Higher than the probability of your post coming from Norway?

You analysis is false.

After am intelligence gathering plane, in international waters, was forced down by China,
Chinese hacktevism and subsequent infectors increased significantly.

Numbers of people doesn't matter. It's intent.

When I spoke of USA and Norway, I was talking about countries.
When I spoke of Europe, I was talking about the continents.

Like, in Sweden there is about 8 million people, in Norway there is
about 4 million (a bit higher). The probability of a virus (or a
program) coming from Sweden is 50% higher than it coming from Norway.
