Sasser Worm

This article from the Toronto Star suggests that the Sasser worm might infect the Internet for years to come. They say: “Unlike most previous Internet outbreaks, Sasser infects vulnerable PCs without any action by the user like opening attachments, allowing it to spread quickly. Computer worms tend to spread faster than the typical e-mail-borne virus since they are usually programmed to continuously scan the Internet’s global network to hunt for PCs to infect.

Experts said while corporate network technicians had by and large moved to block its further spread yesterday, infection among home users was spreading.”

Here’s a link to Symantec’s free removal tool, for those of you who haven’t already applied Microsoft’s recommended patch.
