Well spyware and viruses are getting smarter, and if they can get in and out of your computer with out you knowing it..Then that's not good.

But what are the negatives of this virus? I dont get it, lets say that every computer in the world is infected with storm. Now every computer is just sending this useless virus to each other, even though they have it and don't even know it? Nothing really bad seems to come from it (destroys registry, wipes hdd etc.).

no jk means that storm is highly un noticable so what is the negatives of having it if u cant notice it is there in the first place. and the answer is that storm lets the sender hijack ur comp.
