Blaster Worm Virus

18 posts in this topic

Hey Guys, Just thought i would post some info on a virus that is going around atm..

If anyone is running any of the following operating systems...

Microsoft® Windows NT® 4.0

Microsoft Windows® 2000

Microsoft Windows XP

Microsoft Windows Server™ 2003

Then download this file from Symantec

http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcen...er/FixBlast.exe

Run it and it will remove the virus, there is no other way to remove it, your scanner will not remove it, nor can u manualy delete it. After removing the virus the remover will ask you to download a patch from microsoft to stop the virus re-occuring. Hope this helps everyone who is having problems original.gif

If you want more info on the virus or prevention info heres a link that will help.

Oh, I think this is the virus I have had...is it where the PC ends up going on to a timer and shutting itself off?

Well I hope my friends that I can only keep in contact over the internet due to the fact they live in America don't have it! They don't know too much about Pcs.

The problem for me was when downloading the patch, my pc would get the timer ticking down! Managed to download it though.

Damn our high technology, my commodore 16 never had any problems, it may have been slow but the operating system was sooo easy, a few commands tape drive, thats all it needed. but now its like you need 10 gigs of software just to get the damn thing running the way you want....i say bring back uncomplicated commodores. blink.gif

Then the amigas .. and so on...it was good back then ..

Think amiga still exist?? Heard something but dont remember what it was.

Ah, I used to have one of those, in fact it must be still around here somewhere. Dam fine computer for it's time, but all things considered, I think I'd rather stick with my PC.

I could never go back to having to wait 10 minutes for a program to load.

I went to my grandmothers house to patch it up yesterday...

Now she's hardly the most PC litterate person...for example, when asked what kind of computer she was running, she said "a white one"

I said how this worm only affects certain windows versions and how she had one of those affected.

So she went to the phone and Im like "What ar eyou doing"

...get this...

"Im calling to get a replacement system if this one's faulty"

*laugh*
