RE: 911 or Bat/Firkin Virus

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I wanted to add my caveat to Stan's. This is a REAL virus, put out by some
"Script Kiddie" on the Internet, and has caused a lot of problems especially
for those unsuspecting consumers with "always on" internet connections such
as DSL and Cable Modem.

I further suggest that anyone with concerns about security of such
continuously connected computers visit the Gibson Research website at for information on how to take your Windows "shares" off
the net. They also have a nify FREE personal firewall for Windows that you
can download from there.

Time to put your "Shields Up"!
