It is time to update your virus scanning software.

And whatever you do, don't open any attachments sent to you in the email. It has already shown up in my inbox along with three more emails that had the Beagle or Bagle virus. The MyDoom virus is causing email servers world wide to get shut down.

Play safe out there....

We had a few get through our server before IT attached a new signature file from Mcafee. IT also sent this warning:

"You may also have received a message stating that you sent someone this or another virus. Be aware that most viruses will "Spoof" your e-mail address so it will look like you sent the message."

Thanks Fred......

In this day and age anti virus software is almost obsolete firewalls do not offer the level of protection that is needed. We use both of these and an additional piece of equipment called an isensor, this looks at every packet and drops any malicious packets. Any session that is opened to the internet pokes a hole into the firewall so this traffic is not looked at, that is one way virus's are delivered to you, trojans and spyware also use this method. Email me if anyone has any questions about this.
