Virus paralyzes online operations for Muvico Theaters

Muvico Theaters, the upscale Fort Lauderdale based movie theater chain, said Thursday that it was a victim of an Internet crime that inconvenienced thousands of moviegoers during the opening weekend of the widely anticipated film Mission: Impossible III.

Since last Friday, the 12 megaplex chain has been battling its own version of "Mission Impossible": Muvico has been unable to process credit card purchases, or validate prepaid ticket purchases made through the company's Web site, because of a powerful virus that infected its computer systems and crippled its ability to perform those functions at all of its theaters.
