    Sensational bug turned out to be a PR trick

    German SerNet launched a few weeks ago a marketing campaign, with the danger of future malware warned. Badlock-bug got its own logo, Webpages, and all the toes. Yesterday bug had to attack Windows and Samba Servers with great force, but instead of an explosion belonged mainly to thump.
