Worms in Second Life Posted by Mikko @ 20:11 GMT

ringSecond Life, an online multiplayer game, has recently been targeted with self-replicating scripts, written with the Linden Scripting Language.

Apparently there was a pretty bad attack last weekend, shutting down the game and leaving valid users still without script support. This "Grey Goo" attack was visible to the players of the game as it scattered revolving golden rings around. More from the official Linden Blog.
