DNA matching for real diseases is at least more accurate than string
matching for computer viruses. Sig-based AV scanning will always be behind
on variants. If I can take a virus, change a line in it and infect 100
people without an AV product even winking, they things can be changed.
But maybe I am the only person that wants to be protected? We have made the
public more scared of 12 year old script kiddies then real hackers working
with organized crime family. Funny the way the world works. =)

By that logic, we have "bagle", "agobot", "netsky", and "mydoom". No
need for variant names, and no need for a name for an attack of pancreatic
cancer that knocks out your insulin production, because that's just diabetes
