13 bits of debris

"and this doesn't sound like an april fool's because ... ?"
Likely because the infection is real, and the virus is a fucking beast to remove. Perhaps they planted the line of code regarding April 1 as an April Fools joke, but the thing seems to really be causing trouble.
As for the April 1, bit, were it me coding the horrid thing, I'd mention that deadline but ensure it'd go off sometime March 30.
p.s. I have a hard time envisioning what tortures should be off limits for punishing the writers of virii. I just think anything's fair.
