According to sources, the "Gruel" worm outbreak has been isolated and contained by forcing users to wear surgical masks and requiring complete isolation from the Internet. "It's the only way to contain the virus," according to officials. "Users must stay off the Net for two weeks and have their systems checked by a certified virus detection program."

World Health Organization officials estimate the outbreak can be contained, but only if everyone cooperates with the isolation rules and stays off the Net. "It only takes one doofus attempting to install a fake Windows patch to start infecting everyone all over again," according to a source we couldn't identify because he was wearing a surgical mask.
