An article is breaking right now about a Russsian claim, now confirmed by Iran, that a virus has been stealing data. The claim is supported by the global security firm, Kaspersky Labs, which also just happens to be a Russian company.
This is all very interesting, but where's the Visual Basic connection? (I hear you asking.)
Just this ... According to the New York Times (Iran Confirms Attack by New Data Virus), Kaspersky Labs has supported their claim with some screen shots of code they wrote to detect the virus ... and it seems to me to be written in VB.NET!! (See the illustration.)
VB sometimes gets flak from supercilious C programmers as being just so yesterday. Evidently, Kaspersky Labs doesn't think so.
