BILLY GATES.. stop making money and fix your software; VIRUS MESSAGE TO TYCOON.
MICROFOFT was bracing itself today for an attack by a worldwide virus which carries a message for tycoon owner Bill Gates.
The Blaster worm is being spread by internet and a note on screen pleads with the world's richest man: "Billy Gates why do you make this possible? Stop making money and fix your software."
Up to 300,000 computers are thought to infected by the virus which has been aimed at the Microsoft Update website.
It causes computers to crash continually and it has also programmed infected PCs to bombard the website with corrupt data from today.
Microsoft was last night desperately trying to head off damage from the virus.
