[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.
