the piece of info goa is referring to says the same thing as you do actually, anyway the nai site is updated on 2nd of feb (which is recently), so the microsoft part might actually be new to people.Draylor said:GOA are reading a VERY poor piece of journalism - no doubt over stating the threat to bring more traffic to a very poor website - and reporting it as fact. It is infact utter garbage.
Heh. The ONLY way is with anti-virus software thats regularly updated. Updates to cover this virus have been available since before the weekend - all auto-updating anti-virus software will have picked these up long ago.Kemor said:Best way to fight against a virus is to have as many people using internet aware of it and knowing how to protect from it. This can be done by giving warnings and spreading the information as much as possible.
Could it be - a Frenchman failing to spot sarcasm? Na, that never happensAs for the excuse...at 1am in the morning of the patch day?
Dude, I may disagree with the way GOA handles things sometimes, but you are waaay over the top. I recommend you a few bananas, it'll increase your serotonin, will make you happier.Draylor said:The information was NOT just released, and the virus in question is NOT a serious threat to anything.
This refers to a hacked version of the Mydoom virus (called Novarg by some Anti-Virus companies). The original version was designed to perform a DOS attack against www.sco.com - which youll notice is no longer accessible to prevent it from causing any problems. (The site is temporarily accessible at www.thescogroup.com until this virus deacticvates itself in roughly 2 weeks time)
A modified version of this was submitted to various anti-virus companies which had the address it should attack changed from www.sco.com to www.microsoft.com - HOWEVER this has NOT spread in any significant numbers at all (see the LOW risk rating given to MyDoom/B by every major anti-virus company - for example NAI ) Basically this means its never been seen outside of an anti-virus company network.
GOA are reading a VERY poor piece of journalism - no doubt over stating the threat to bring more traffic to a very poor website - and reporting it as fact. It is infact utter garbage.
Of course this couldnt just be GOA clutching at straws to use any possible excuse for server difficulties tomorrow could it? Na, we know they never do anything like that
Well - its now well after this virus was scheduled to begin it DOS attacks.old.Osy said:Dude, I may disagree with the way GOA handles things sometimes, but you are waaay over the top. I recommend you a few bananas, it'll increase your serotonin, will make you happier.
Now there my friend, you are indeed quite wrong. But don't let me alter that view.Draylor said:...after 2 years your constant refusal to accept GOA could ever make a mistake...
Ungoogled, genuine moment from my trip to a zoo in France... I needed some inspiration for a new avatar and that's the result of checking my photos on my laptop here at workBrannor McThife said:Jup...that Avatar is just... WRONG.
