Write virus, win prize

Antivirus vendor GateKeeper LLC in Leesburg, Va., has launched its second virus-writing competition. The prize: US$10,000. The challenge: to get a new virus onto a decoy desktop inside the GateKeeper network, something that took three weeks to accomplish in last year's contest.

While GateKeeper claims that the contest helps it develop better products, it has drawn fire from the IT and vendor community.
