Nasty Virus/Worm going around.

I little worm is going around from the MS05-039 vulnerability. I would suggest running windows update and getting your lastest security updates installed. Updating your virus definitions will be a good idea as well. I will post more info as soon as I get it. right:

Re: Nasty Virus/Worm going around.

This is probably one of the fastest worms to pop up in a long time. The patches where released Tuesday by Thursday night there was exploit code on the net and by Sunday there was a worm hitting boxes.

Re: Nasty Virus/Worm going around.

Yeh, SBC is getting hit by it hard right now.

One of our Instructors is IT for them, he's been at work non-stop since 5pm yesterday.

Makes me glad I don't have a "real" job...........

Well... for the right price they could have me as an employee to help setup proper security procedures to avoid this kind of incident. Let me know if they are interested. right:
