Welcome to IWETHEY!

New I have no explanation that I am sure of.
I think you don't either.

My guess is a security hole, a bug.

Your guess is an inherent deficiency of architecture.

Neither of us is in a position to prove our guesses. You are in a somewhat better position to investigate - you actually have logs and what not from your co-worker's breakage. But, unless you understand _exactly_ how the malware gained access to the protected areas of the system, we still don't know for sure.

No matter how much Microsoft supporters whine about how Linux and other operating systems have just as many bugs as their operating systems do, the bottom line is that the serious, gut-wrenching problems happen on Windows, not on Linux, not on Mac OS. -- [link|http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1622086,00.asp|source]
