[APD] Viruses and worms....

Some one that has the APD email address in their address book is infected with one or more viruses and/or worms. This IMHO is inexcusable. Running a computer without up to date anti-virus software is akin to sky diving without a parachute or like removing the front door to your house and piling your valuables right inside the door. And if you have a broadband connection you should be running a fire wall. I have three computers connected to a broadband connection at home and when the "blaster" worm was going full force I was being port scanned about 2-5 times a second on my three active static IP addresses. Just for giggles I took a spare machine I had laying around and connected it to the broadband connection. It took seven seconds for this machine to become infected. If you do not have a fire wall and a virus scanner then please go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ or http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/ and have your computer scanned for viruses. Once your machine is clean disconnect it from your Internet connection until you have installed a virus checker and a fire wall.

Always practice safe hex.
