EMERGENCY ALERT- WORM ATTACK
Most Windows Computers are vulnerable.
I strongly recommend downloading and installing patches on all Windows 2000,
Windows XP, and Windows 2003 Server computers as soon as possible.
This first link will give you Microsoft's
page including links for downloads.
Vulnerability in Server Service Could Allow Remote Code
Free scanning utility to help IT administrators find potentially
vulnerable machines on a network.
More continuing reminders...
1) Back up your data!
2) If your hard drive is 3 years or older,
think about replacing it. New ones are pretty inexpensive and include
"cloning" software. Most hard
drives fail within the 3-5 year window.
3) Clean and dust. Carefully vacuum the
vents and drives, even if you don't feel comfortable opening the case.
4) Use antistatic spray or a mixture of fabric
softener and water in a spray bottle. Dry air with static electricity
can break keyboards and occasionally more expensive items.
That's it for this newsletter...
Until next time... Happy Computing !
