Re: these exploits are worthless

"Curious then that it has affected so many dispersed bits of the country. "

The term you're looking for is 'continent'. Or possible 'world'; Russia has millions of infections right now, with Taiwan and China both heavily hit too. Half of Europe is being hit. List on the BBC's breaking news site currently says UK, Spain, Italy, China, Russia, Vietnam, Kazakhstan and Taiwan. Avast alone has 36,000 infections going live right now.

This is fucking massive.
