Virus Alert - W32.Sasser.B.Worm

May 3, 2004
A worm has been released on the internet similar to the Blaster worm we experienced in August. It has not hit campus, but we expect it to at some point in the next day or so. Please help protect our campus network by running Windows Updates on any Windows-based PC of which you have control, especially laptops that are used on another network such as Road Runner or Grande. You can do this in Internet Explorer under the Tools menu. Please install any outstanding critical updates.

For more information on the worm, you can look here:

The patches are available on Baylor's appcenter and here:
