Virus created by Anti-Virus company to install anti-virus software on all computers

Anti-Virus company GorillaV has today released its very own virus into the wild, against its very creed and ethos. However, this virus is different to the ones you normally see the company fighting against - this one actually installs anti-virus software. 

It's a bold move, and potentially a very exciting and creative one that, if successful, should mean that not only will all computers be protected against viruses, but the company itself should become the number 1 anti-virus company in the world.

"For us, it's win-win," claimed GorillaV spokesperson Jane Dorrocks. "We'll trounce all the other anti-virus companies, and we'll be protecting the world. To be honest, the first one is the most important by far. When do you want to start this interview?"

However, some are skeptical about the move, suggesting that creating a virus, regardless of final intentions, is clearly against the whole ethos of the anti-virus community. Other wags have also suggested the the move creates a Catch-22 that won't ever be broken, and might actually cause a rift in the space-time continuum.

"It's trippy. I mean, it's a virus that installs anti-virus. But an anti-virus program should always not only remove the immediate virus threat, but also clean up the effects of any virus, which surely includes the anti-virus program as well. But their own anti-virus will be programmed not to do that successfully, and so it's just a merry-go-round."

I've just stroked my beard. I don't have a beard. The thing about commenting when I feel like this... is that there's nothing really to say.

I didn't read this because it neither irritated nor pleased me. I also make obvious comments in real life. Snore.
