With a US$30 Billion dollars invested in the International Space Station, don’t you think NASA and the Russian Gov’t could pony up a couple of bucks to install antivirus software on the laptops and other computers?

Apparently they don’t, but are doing so now. Seems the ISS found itself infected with the W32.Gammima.AG worm.

W32.Gammima is a worm that spreads through removable media and steals information related to the MapleStory online game. This particular infection was in fact found on a compact flash card brought aboard by one of the astronauts.

The worm monitors Internet Explorer and steals the following information:

  • Accounts and passwords to the MapleStory online game
  • Role and item information in the game

The stolen information is sent to the author via email and HTTP

Systems Affected by this worm: Windows 98, Windows 95, Windows XP, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000

S740

Though well-known for its “TouchFLO” enhancements to Windows Mobile, HTC has not abandoned non-touchscreen phones. Windows for Devices has details on the newly announced, candybar-style “S740″ runs Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard, has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, sports a 3.2 megapixel camera, and includes GPS, WiFi, plus an FM radio.

I for one welcome more candybar mobiles like my Pantech Duo I bought this Spring.
