Big Worm Attack

January 23rd, 2009

Computer SecurityApparently we are in the midst of a massive internet worm attack, the likes of which hasn’t been seen in years. Estimates of the number of compromised systems range from 6% to 30%. Let me clarify—that’s the percentage of all Windows computers in the world that have been taken over. The worm doesn’t destroy data on the target systems, it just turns them into ’bots for sending spam and creating DDOS attacks. Time to update those virus definitions and do a scan.
