The laptop was bought by G Data CyberDefense, a German company with 500 employees that prides itself on having built one of the first antivirus software programs in the 1980s. Hauke Gierow, a company spokesman, described the computer as an old thing from the early 2000s.

Its not the kind of thing you can use in your office, he said in a telephone interview on Tuesday. We bought it purely out of curiosity.

That included the chance that there might be something interesting on the hard drive, Mr. Gierow said and the hunch turned out to be correct, even if the buyer didnt realize it immediately.

So this has made national news and we're being overwhelmed with information. Anything worth posting please put in here regarding this subject. CodeBrosForums is mostly about technology but we do allow some other topics within their own subforums.

What is Corona Virus (also known as COVID-19)?:
According to the CDC, COVID-19 is known as a "novel coronavirus." On their website it reads, "A novel coronavirus is a new coronavirus that has not been previously identified. The virus causing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is not the same as the coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold."
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/faq.html#basics

This virus is thought to be spread from person-to-person contact. So avoid crowds and make sure to avoid touching places like your face. Washing your hands properly is very important.

Even though chances of getting bad sick are low (as of this post) it's still good to keep the spreading of this as low as possible.

United States / Re: Marijuana Legalization

At least 10 governors have gone so far as to put language ending marijuana prohibition in their annual budget requests, or used their State of the State speeches to pressure legislators to act on cannabis reform.

Some are proactively addressing the issue, while others appear to be mostly reacting to support that has already built up among lawmakers. But altogether, its clear that top state executives are now taking marijuana more seriously than ever before.

Scientists have created the world's first living, self-healing robots using stem cells from frogs.
Named xenobots after the African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis) from which they take their stem cells, the machines are less than a millimeter (0.04 inches) wide -- small enough to travel inside human bodies. They can walk and swim, survive for weeks without food, and work together in groups.

Xenobots even have self-healing capabilities; when the scientists sliced into one robot, it healed by itself and kept moving.
