Wow. They're just now reporting this? Scientific American reported something similar in 2009 and Mythbusters also did an episode on it several years ago.

Everything old is new again. I just found it appropriate as I have been doing some scientific research in that area the last two days, recovering from a ransomware attack at work. Everyone here now have a new appreciation for nightly backups.

I certainly hope the cretin who opened the infected email has been severely dealt with as well. >.<

Your assumption as to how it got in is correct.

Wigums, give it some more time. In a few years, we'll be like babies again, babbling incoherently, drooling all over ourselves, and needing diaper changes.

Funny you bring up cussing;
Good to see the profaniy-hound is off here.(would've done so when still at the helm here, but the co-adminship with Tigger tied my hands...)
WHerever I've looked on the 'net, it was the same:
The stricter the control on cussing and swearing, the viler the social climate became.
People WILL find ways around it and make it worse, just because.
With the occasional hiccup, sites, not bothering with word-filters, have a more respectfull and well-mannered community.
