WORM-SNIFFERS at SophosLabs say they've found a wiggly specimen that likes to send a picture of an owl to attached network printers. The "Hoots-A" worm is written in Visual Basic and spreads via network shares, Sohpos said. It attempts to send a graphical image of an owl bearing the legend "O RLY?" to a number of print queues. "O RLY?", said Sophos experts, is Internet slang for "Oh really?"


Well, I've only got one thing to say to that!

I dunno, that looks a lot more like one of the tetrapod creatures from _A Shadow Out Of Time_ than a cthulhu to me...

Unfortunately, the ironic resemblance to an O'Reilly cover is probably lost on a great number of people.

If I did that, I would make sure that text-only printers
will properly show the picture:
   /         \
 (~  _     _  )    ______________
 /  (O)   \O) \   /
 |   ' _/\ `  |  /
 |     \ \)' |) <   O RLY?
 |      \/)  ||  \
 `\           |   \______________
  |            )
  |            \
