News.com reports today that Microsoft has accidentally sent out the Nimda worm to South Korean developers with the latest version of Visual Studio .NET.
Microsoft moved its spin doctor mechanisms into high gear today and claimed that no-one had executed Mr Nimda by accident.
Plus the thing wouldn t start being a wormy Nimda because Visual Studio .NET needs version 6.0 of its browser.
The nematode won t work with that version, says the wire.
Nevertheless, it is something of a humiliation for the firm, which is having the same kind of annus horribilis that Intel had two years back.
