New global virus alert.
Got a virus last night that seems to be global...turned my firewall off just for a moment couse it slowed down my connection....
Didnīt know that the massive virus attack did it to my firewall.
Had to reinstall everything couse I couldnīt clean out the virus from the system..
Even manually.
noticed that virus progs usually doesnīt react on this one...and if it does..it cant move, quarantine or delete it.  not yet anyway


Virus filename: msblast or msblow
If you got it try to remove all processes with that name and then delete.
DO NOT SHUT FIREWALL OFF AT ANY TIMES... FOR NOW

Get the free personal firewall at:

We are just farts in space and time.

Just got news on this particular virus:

It mainly strikes on Windows xp and if u update ur windows at www.windowsupdate.com it will close the security hole that the virus uses.

But the firewall is still a good one to get. (A MUST HAVE)
Had a few and this is the best so far.
Also have router with firewall but that doesnīt make your computer safe enough.
Please protect yourself with this complement.

Bwhahahahaa i am the master, this virus was ultimately crushed by my superior intellect as it calmly splashed against my firewall. ZONELABS make the best firewall its called zonealarm thumbsup.gif you can get it here zonelabs

I recommend it, it is the best firewall out. I also advise getting a trojan scanner which you may find here ZDnet although you will have to use the search tool to find it.

last 2 days the virus has messed up approximately 24000 systems in sweden...Swedish servers and homes usually all uses microsoft OS...thats why the impact was so devastating.
But if everyone had updated their systems in time that wouldnīt happened.
And the update came out late..Donīt know why.
