Re: new virus

If there was something worth switching to, everyone would have done so by now . . .

How many TPS does that Big Mac do anyway with a 500 user load?

Re: new virus

This guy got us today. *I have admin rights on my workstation so I can regularly do updates and patches, but most people here at work can't(or don't)...and our IT aren't the quickest group(obviously)....

This is a nasty virus, it's really messing people up.

Re: new virus

We just got hit today. *In our case it's not so much the virus itself it's McAfee that's causing our problems right now.

Refering to W32\Lovsan.worm
