Malware's a bit scary.

You know what else is scary? Monsters.

Terrifying, huh?

    Nice contest, better than building actual malware.

    Lol I was thinking 'What is Sophos Promoting by building your own malware monsters". What a great little fun project. Downfall is the prizes awarded.

    Also can you verify that the monster pictured above is made out of legos? It has been a long time since I have touched them, but some of these parts look foreign to my childhood as lego pieces.

    Looks like I may yet get my entire room made out of legos, and use this as my excuse. I am really gonna have to go all out to compete against the above peice which is so far the best looking one on the site. I wonder if I can computer generate the image out of lego pieces instead of going out to buy a massive amount of these little blocks for matching colors.
