I still laughed even though I had to go in there and remove all the copies. My security prevented the adding of startup items from it so I had only half the mess to clean up. Compare that to a real hijacker that would steal all your bandwidth to traffic anything the creator wanted. What's scarier is that I won't even notice as my computer and internet connections are too fast to show up as a significant slowdown (that AND they're written for speed in the first place so you don't notice). I'd rather get surprised by a screamer than have my machine do the will of someone other than me.
I remember one of my friends wrote a program that would draw black pixels, and every day another black pixel would constantly be drawn, and added to the other pixels in place of what was really supposed to be there. His victim friend actually replaced the monitor before he was told it was just a joke program.
