  1. what a great interview. I remember having Dr. Solomon installed on my PC back in the early 90's and I still remember that unmistakable alarm sound it made when it detected a virus that I got from a floppy. It was called the "Khobar" virus as it originated from Khobar city here in Saudi Arabia – somehow it managed to make its way to Jeddah!

  2. Thank you for commenting, Dr Solomon.

    It was I who interviewed you. You're right, much of this still holds true, but as you say it's not just kids any more. One of these days you should do a programme about Stuxnet!

    I'm am glad you have seen this and enjoyed it. To remind you of the occasion, it was recorded in the TV Studio of Imperial College of Science and Technoloy in South Kensington, London.

    Thanks again for granting us this interview.

    Cheers,
    Steve Bell.

  3. Thanks for posting this, I don't remember that interview, but I just watched it, and it all sounds just as true today, except that it isn't just kids any more.
