  1. A worm has begun spreading that exploits what some have called the most widespread Windows flaw ever--a flaw for which Microsoft issued a patch in July. Since we had warned you a couple of times during the last few weeks I really hope most of you haven't been affected by the virus.

    If you have been affected though, here's extensive coverage of the problem and how to solve it.

    Discussion about this flaw was made in our forums days ago and with the widespread of the virus came a bunch of people looking for information on how to solve their problems. This forum thread got heavily googled throughout the day receiving well over 55,000 views so far... leading to a record of forum user registrations in one day, too.
