Just in from the bad world of Worms and Viruses

Trend Micro, a Japanese antivirus company, just announced a new worm. This worm is shutting down computers running Microsoft Windows 2000. The worm, to-be-named, comes in three variations and exploits a hole in the plug and play feature of Windows 2000. Last Week Microsoft offered a fix as part of its monthly patching cycle.

Update: Zotob is the name of this ugly worm. This worm exploits security holes in not only Microsoft's Windows 2000, but also 95, 98, ME, NE and XP platforms. It can give computer attackers remote access to affected systems. Protect yourself so you can stay safe!
