Report from the trenches in a different kind of war

Seeing this BBC report on the arrest of men in Morocco and Turkey in connection with the recent Zotob computer worm, my suspicious mind immediately thought a new cyber front had opened in the war on terror. Fortunately (I think), it appears that the two men were garden-variety fraudsters involved in some sort of bankcard scam.

While researching this story, however, I stumbled across this fascinating "day in the life" account of one of the people on the front lines in the global effort to protect our computers and networks from worms, viruses and other forms of attack. It's pretty interesting reading.
