Computer Virus Hits Internet
A Windows vulnerability surfaced today that caused
widespread computer outages and took many internet
customers offline. The virus called "Microsoft
Windows DCOM RPC Interface Buffer Overrun Vulnerability" affects only Windows 2000, Windows NT and Windows XP systems.
Mediacom recommends all customers run the "Window Update" program usually found in all copies of Windows operating systems. Current security updates will prevent the vulnerability from being exploited and prevent subscribers from potentially losing network connectivity due to this issue.
As a temporary measure Mediacom will be blocking certain
internet ports in an attempt to limit the spread of this problem. We will unblock these ports again in a few days.
