New Worm Worm-rbot.cbq


Recommended Posts

The worm primarily affects Windows 2000, it also can affect some early versions of Microsoft XP. Symptoms include the repeated shutdown and rebooting of a computer.

 

Microsoft would not estimate how many users have been affected and described the problem as low-impact.

 

It only hit 3000 machines at our work so I would say that once again MS is right on target.

Yep...it got CNN too, so it's only a "low-impact" problem. Gotta love it. Yet another reason to have some type of UPDATED firewall and anti-virus protection on any computer system you own. Thanks for the heads up, Rob!

Yeah,

 

Our company does aerospace and government contracts. Our server team knew about it and patched their computers but never spread the word so now we have to go out and patch all of those computers.

Don't you just love those government contractors? :)
