Tips Of The Day For October 2001

Tip Of The Day For October 4, 2001: The other day I had to help a friend restore his system from an infestation by the infamous SirCam32 worm. He didn't realize he had contracted it, and was using an out-of-date virus scanner that handled the virus incorrectly, leaving his system in an unusable state (no applications would run). I had to talk him through a manual registry fix over the phone, never a fun thing. :^) Two morals: don't open email attachments, and keep your virus definition files up to date.
