I just got a msg off a friend I know in the USA on ICQ that this worm is suppose to strike big time tomorrow and cause chaos. I asked my friend where it came from and this is what she said.
[20:31] Maria: a friend emailed it to me
[20:35] Maria: should I pass this around to have people
search for it?
At the taskbar, click Start|Run. Type 'Regedit' and press Return. The registry editor opens.
Before you edit the registry, you should make a backup. If in doubt, contact your network administrator. Incorrect editing of the Windows Registry can cause system failure.
Locate the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE entry:
in the righthand pane select
windows auto update = msblast.exe
and delete it if it exists.
So if your are unsure about this then take your pc's off-line till Monday, and export a copy of your registry now as a backup. You can then restore in safe mode if needs be.
I keep getting warnings from MSN (using Trillian as my client for all chat servers) that the worm is out of control and causing chaos:eek:
Take it how you will, this is an important development and major risk to newbies and pros.
Just doing my job for the community;)
