    Security researchers have discovered that the authors of MyDoom and Bagle are exchanging insults with the author of NetSky, using text hidden inside their virus code.

    Between Friday and Wednesday, more than 10 variants of the NetSky, Bagle and MyDoom worms have been discovered. Mutants spreading in the past 24 hours have contained messages, complete with vulgar taunts, that indicate that the authors of MyDoom and Bagle have teamed up against NetSky's author, antivirus experts said.

    Finnish security company F-Secure on Tuesday reported that Bagle.J contained a line of text that said: "Hey, NetSky...don't ruine our bussiness, wanna start a war?"

    MyDoom.G, which was released on the same day, also contained a message to NetSky's author: "to NetSky's creator(s): imho, skynet is a decentralized peer-to-peer neural network. we have seen P2P in Slapper in Sinit only. they may be called skynets, but not your...app."

    I'd say they talk to each other from prison cells...these virus writers are doing no good. someone should be trying to catch them.
