Is There A Zombie In The Vatican?

Apparently the Vatican has emerged as a source of spam traffic. Not intentionally, I'm sure, but there is probably a zombied computer somewhere in the Vatican that is sending out spam (and according to one study, 80% of all spam comes from zombie computers). So if people would just run their computers effectively -- patch often, run a firewall, run antivirus software, use Firefox instead of MSIE, scan for spyware regularly -- I'm sure the world would have far less of a spam problem (wishful thinking, I know).

And before I hear it, yes, they could buy a Mac or use a Linux machine and not have these problem. But realistically, that's not going to happen for most people, and I think we all know that.

I could also see this being a new Mac commercial: "Devine intervention is still not going to help your PC stay clean."
