The end of the world as we know it. :roll:
Just did a full reinstal this weekend, not too worried. Heck, even my old install would probably have been fine. Anyone who downloads the patches and has a decent, up to date anti virus IMO should be fine.

Here we go again :o
I still haven't gotten over the millennium bug :doh:

Yes, the Y2K bug!
From what I read, MS has alread sent a patch out for malicious code on this one but apparently it has evolved into something else. If you get it, MS will send out a tool to remove it. Same as before.

Got this From Trend Micro about ten minutes ago:

I must admit that this bugger seems quite intelligent. Or should I say that the guys who patched it together seem so. :hmmm:
For a worm to gain this much attention is IMO a respectable achievement, even if it's designed for malicious purposes. :yep:
"put a condom on it" :rotfl:

Because of this crap I have a laptop with strong Virus protection and the minimal tools I need for the internet.
If it gets past that I can do a simple reformat and am back in business.
My Gameing rig is for gameing and no internet connection.
I hope no one has a problem with this virus.
I also hope they catch these a-holes and chop off their hands.
