Sasser virus has vulnerability

By on May 14, 2004, 7:08 PM
Something I never even had the ability to imagine has happened; a vulnerability in the virus sasser has been found and is being actively exploited by another virus. [URL=http://www.f-secure.com/v-descs/dabber.shtml]"Dabber"[/URL] Which in turn removes serveral viruses and then installs it's own backdoor into the computer.

Did I mention it is a good idea to [URL=http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com]keep you systems updated[/URL]?

WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ive only had 1 virus ever, but this is just getting out of hand. My father, who has never turned a computer on in his life, warned me about the sasser worm. I almost crapped my trousers.
