I'm Starting A Mac Virus Hunt Contest? I Meant ... I'd Like To Start It, Not Actually Start It.

As reported by MacSlash

Virus Hunt Ends...Wait, It Never Started!

When we posted earlier about Wil Shipley's $500 Mac virus bounty, we left out one important fact: he was merely floating the idea, not actually launching it! Seems we weren't the only ones who went crazy at the word "go" -- although his putative deadline came and went Sunday night, Shipley was swamped with responses. The result? He has three potential Mac viruses, and some investigating to do. Whether he pays out the $500 is uncertain...

good thing it was only $500 and not $10,000, or he'd be hooked...oh well... :(
