this is very strange...


In the sentence "Since this attack took place exactly one week before Friday, March 13th, 1992--computer users who believed that they could avoid Jerusalem by changing the system date (on the twelfth) would be ensnared"[1], to what does "Jerusalem" refer? Jerusalem Standard Time? Something else? It is not explained in the article. Valley2city 19:07, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

KSib> I believe he is referencing the Jerusalem computer virus. You can update it if you wish. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:40, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Continuity issue[edit]

The first sentence claims that the virus was first discovered in April of 1992. However, the last paragraph states that it came to widespread public attention in 1992. WTF? (talk) 23:35, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
