    Virus worm

    Well my problem was due to the world wide worm which is closing down every ones p.c's. Heres how to fix it

    The worm is currently spreading rapidly and has infected several thousand machines.

    To protect your PC against this worm: Go to the start menu and click on Windows Update. This will take you to the Microsoft Update page. Click on scan for updates. You will be presented with a list of upgrades available for your system. You should install all the Critical Updates and Service Packs.

    As well as fixing this vulnerability, the service packs will also fix other potential problems and increase the security of your machine. supanet advise that you should try and check for updates from Microsoft at least once per week.

    Users who only want the patch to fix this vulnerability can get it from the Microsoft website.

    The worm, dubbed LoveSan, Blaster, or MSBlaster, exploits a vulnerability in the Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) service that is hosted by a Remote Procedure Call (RPC) feature in Windows 2000 and Windows XP. This feature allows computers to share files, among other activities.

    The worm does not spread via email. Instead, it scans the Internet on port 135 looking for vulnerable computers. When it finds one, it attempts to exploit the DCOM RPC buffer overflow, create a remote root shell on TCP port 4444, then uses FTP to download a file called msblast.exe onto the infected computer.
