Manchester United have been hit with a virus ahead of tomorrow's derby against City with Patrice Evra, Nemanja Vidic, Dimitar Berbatov and Paul Scholes all believed to be among the victims, we can read in Guardian.co.uk
Normally Virus is a small infectious agent that can replicate only inside the living cells of organisms. Within the IT-world we know Computer virus as a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer. The term "virus" is also commonly but erroneously used to refer to other types of malware, including but not limited to adware and spyware programs that do not have the reproductive ability.
Hopefully the virus is not following Ole Gunnar Solskjær on his return to Norwegian fotball and Molde FK. At least this confirmation of a Virus/malware-free Mac Book Pro can stand as a artificial confirmation that the virus in Manchester not already has reached our part of the world.
