That's what I heard--Melissa was like a kiss on the cheek by comparison,
and it sure beat the Y2K issue for trouble. You'd think that Microsoft
would get its act together and fix these security issues in its software.
Between Melissa and ILOVEYOU (among others) the ability to diddle systems
using macro viruses has cost a helluva lot of time, money and anguish.
