This was quite inevitable, especially in Japan. I'll be surprised if they don't basically kill the convention completely and restart it/rebrand it.

Sunshine was one of the biggest of the doujin conventions outside of comiket itself, though, so this is a pretty significant blow to the "doujinshi" community.

I can only imagine what some mainstream people may be thinking. And in my opinion this convention will probably not see any more participation from their guests as well as it may be hard to find people to participate in later cons, if it survives at all.

My guess is the virus was related to this: http://www.cnn.com/2009/TECH/ptech/01/16/virus.downadup/index.html

This really sucks though........and here I was hoping for more doujinshi, but of course, privacy and security comes first

I feel bad for the people who had already sent their work to the printers.
