This morning I opened the mail and noted that our business insurance (ASB) had some new clauses with respect to damage caused
to electronic data. Gone is the old clause relating to the Y2K issue (that was a laugh) and in its place is an exclusion for "loss of or
damage to electronic data from any cause whatsoever including but not limited to, a computer virus"
I guess this means that the insurance industry is seeing a significant amount of claims from this cause and are seeking to eliminate this risk to their profits.
