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
http://www.grc.com/ 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"!

This is neither a hoax nor another April Fools prank!  Your computer needs
immediate protection!
