Hi I need advice, I was on the Microsoft Update site last night,downloding the lates updates, when my Norton Virus Checker popped up and told me that my computer was infected with the saser 32 virus, I have rolled back my computer with a restore point,and checked that I am free from viruses, but I am frightend to go anywhere neer microsoft again, how am I going to keep my computer updated. Hoping for advice Jim
' I just dont want to go nere Microsoft at the moment until they clean up their servers.'...if you have applied the patch and updated your AV you will be more than protected. No harm was done and you could have easily removed it without a rollback. The virus has nothing to do with MS servers, it was exploiting an unsecure coding that has now been fixed.
Very annoying getting a virus but you need to protect your computer with anti-virus software which you have and have you updated norton regularly.You also need a good firewall and mailwasher to check your emails on the server.No good blaming microsoft there are loads of viruses about now and they can come from anywhere.Regards
