Japanese Cops Collar Malware-Carrying Cat

»idle.slashdot.org/story/13/01/09···ying-cat

"When imagining law enforcement officers investigating and searching for cyber criminals or evidence about their activities, the last thing that you can probably envision is them searching for a stray cat. But that was exactly what detectives of Japan's National Police Agency recently did as the last step in a complex 'treasure hunt' started on New Year's Day by a person (persons?) who is allegedly the mastermind behind the so-called 'Remote Control Virus.' The malware in question was instrumental in staging a continuous campaign of death and bomb threats sent to airline companies, kindergartens, schools, law offices, broadcasting networks and shrines."

They were riddles this time - riddles designed to make the police jump through hoops in order to locate and capture a stray cat with a memory card attached to its collar.

Ahhhh. So you had to plug the cat into your computer

They're trying to take over the world, you know. Those cats.

Pinky and the Brain got nothin' on the feline kind.
