Viruses

W32.Sobig.F is getting very annoying. So is W32.Blaster.Worm.

Why can’t people just take proper precautions:

  1. Firewall. I have 3, Win XP firewall/OS X Firewall, Sygate Personal Firewall (laptop), and a Netgear Hardware firewall (w/ SPI). All you really need is 1.
  2. Virus Scan
  3. Secure up to date software. At the very least, update Windows. Use a good email client like Mozilla.

Viruses are a real pain in the butt. And avoidable for all but the first few to get infected.
