The Dweebo virus started out infecting computers across South Africa. Now it has spread worldwide. Simple yet deadly, the Dweebo virus is spreading from laptops to Blackberries, from government networks to military hard drives.

IT specialists are trying, desperately, to deactivate it.

“We know only one thing for sure,” a computer scientist from Harvard University, USA, explains, “This Dweebo virus originated in South Africa, we suspect in a small north-western town called Disaneng. It was started by a computer hacker.”
