Another story in the city

I went over to a co-workers place today to take a look at a virus issue on his computer. The viruses were rather pernicious. Everytime you’d run another scan it would find some more. I finally got it to a point where I didn’t see any remaining viruses. cross fingers.
The scary thing about this computer is that it hadn’t been patched since the clinton administration and it was directly connected to a broadband connection. I went ahead and got him set up with XP sp2, upgraded his SAV and installed Microsoft Antispyware. That and turning on the XP firewall should hold off further infection. Oh and auto updating on the patches.
