This could be seen as Darwinism at work. Anyone dumb enough to download this malware deserves to get it.

re: Royal Baby Malware Attacks
I am IT consultant all over Asia to help secure companies pc's and servers from malware. With the new morphing viruses I had to get really creative and innvoative to bring a real solution to the table that works. The anti virus software etc just can't protect them from morphing i.e. changing malware anymore.

So I found this commercial Linux OS that cocoons all versions of Windows: i.e. 7 & XP inside a very innovative and specialized VM so that the users data files are saved to a Linux partition while the Windows OS & software is initially backed up and stored in just one .vdi file safely inside the Linux partition, which contains their original Windows installation with all its programs too. So when they get hit with a morphing virus it takes them only one click to restore their original copy of Windows and of course since their data is always safe inside the Linux partition and fully read writable from the Windows OS with bookmarked folders there is no downtime as it only takes seconds to click on their Robolinux menu option that restores their original perfect Windows Virtual Machine back to the way it was before the virus struck them.

The result is they are completely immune to all Windows malware.

I can barely keep up with the demand for it. Check it out: Google Robolinux.
