Virus Alert for WIN9.x & WINME users


W32.BadTrans.B@mm is making the rounds (and has been for a couple days). It's a self-propogating worm that installs a keylogging backdoor trojan that checks for keywords (passwords, credit cards, etc.) on systems using WIN9.x or WINME OSs.

Odd timing, I know.

It's easily enough removed, though you might hit a bit of net slowdown as it propogates. It has become so widespread, that it has just knocked SirCam from Messagelab's daily top ten.

Will somebody please bring me some coffee? I still haven't gotten the hang of Thursdays, and have not yet learned to fly. Tanku : )

We now return you to your regularly-scheduled reality, already in progress.
