Virusy Badness

There's a HUGE exploit for every version of Windows since 98 going around. It affects all those versions, and is not browser-specific, and is likely now finding ways to come through e-mail. It's coming in 50+ varieties so far, and Windows has yet to offer a patch. If they're smart, there will be one shortly, but MS only releases patches on the second Tuesday of the month, and that is over a week away. With the speed with which this is spreading new versions, it is imperative that you take precautions now until MS gets off their ass.

The link above has better info, and a number of fixes to tide you over until MS can be bothered.

Remember, keeping viri off your system is good for Everyone.
