    It exists. Millions of computers have been infected and I've single handedly cleaned up several dozens of infected computers in this area.

    If you are behing a router, firewall software, or already have the patch which protects against "Blasterworm", then you would have been unaffected.

    ok well i have a firewall and im behind a router. so i guess im safe. but speaking of being behind a router i cant do a lot of things and ive been told i need to forward the ports but i have no clue what that is or how to do it.
