MyDoom and MS Windows update for 2/11

Posted: 20:26:36, Monday, Feb 9, 2004   Expiration: 19:00:00, Tuesday, Feb 10, 2004

With the latest variant of the MyDoom worm, and recently reported Microsoft Windows vulnerabilities, the campus is reminded again to take several easy steps to secure their computers against these problems.

Install Norton AntiVirus and scan your computer for viruses. Use the latest virus definitions (updated as of 2/11/04). You can obtain a free copy of Norton from the DoIT Tech Store, or via the link below. 

Also install the latest Windows patches. For details on how to do these, see: http://www.doit.wisc.edu/security/tips.asp.

If you are an employee, and your department has a tech support person, please contact that person first before making any changes to your computer.
