    Soda_Popinsky,

    Yeah, thanks for reminding me! Maybe if I stick my head under the pillow the need will just go away. Seems to becoming a never ending battle. Patch MS, Patch *nix, Patch MS, Patch *nix........

    working on the fix for the 2.6.xxx kernal, then off to MS for the criticals...

    cheers

    Unless the AI was written by a human

    The only vulnerability this one abuses is the one inside the lusers head (Oh, look, how nice, an ecard, click-click). Still haven't figured out how to format, reinstall and patch a luser

    It's getting close to 7-8000 a day here

    The auto-replies suck indeed. If it's a Dutch company I will call them directly. You won't believe what total n00bs I get on the phone claiming to be responsible for the email of their company

    You could also email this link to them:

    Good idea..
    I used to call local companies too, but it was not good for my blood pressure, and faith in humanity as a whole

    You'd think that with all the media coverage nowadays most admins would be aware..
    But on the other hand, you'd expect people to stop opening non-requested attachments too !!

    Even though I have not used M$ for almost a year, I do recall the AV program I did use. I would recommend it to anyone.

    AVG Free Edition Anti-Virus

    [shadow]They have received the VB100% in the test of Virus Bulletin in June 2004 on Windows XP platform.[/shadow]
    Also...
    [shadow]100% detection rate of AVG Anti-Virus System is continuously certified by independent ICSA laboratories.[/shadow]

    You use what you want, but use something! and keep it up to date!

    Have a good day.
    Computers do not have problems, they have users.
