    The killswitch (www.iuqerfsodp9ifjaposdfjhgosurijfaewrwergwea.com) was probably built into the virus from the start during development and testing, they "should" have removed it before letting the virus worm out across the net. A version of the virus with the killswitched hex edited out was found in the wild soon after the original virus was discovered. There is some more technical info about the virus here

    It's worth mentioning that the british info security worker who quickly registered the kill switch url which completely halted the virus was harassed and doxxed by journalists and as a direct consequence of that arrested and kept prisoner in the US for months.

    I thought it was just one day i don't know how or when it became a whole month. I don't really have time to celebrate (or whatever?) for a whole month. I am not enjoying large corporations pretending to care about us on social media. Something very creepy about that new phenomenon.

    I've been struggling with a problem where a friend often interrupts me or tries to complete my sentences for me while I'm still talking. It's happened so much that it's upsetting me more now, and I don't think I can spend time with that person anymore. Have talked about it to them twice but they were argumentative (which is not something I deal with) and the second time they tried to make themselves the victim and deny that it happened. It's been kind of hitting on my mental health the way they tried to deny it, and also the way it makes me feel like I'm not good to be around.

    wouldn't googling about this to research it for yourself be better than checking one potentially cherry picked linked by the author?
