I find it hilarious that when a new virus comes out (Today - the Goner worm), and Symantec doesn't have a virus def out for it by noon, everybody is up in arms. Yeah, so other companies have one out already. Anybody know if it works?? Maybe Symantec is making sure everything is tested and they are protected against the whole thing, etc. People are so damn impatient.

symantec has the fix out, lol most of it is a reg edit, and reinstallation of the software. The new virus deletes the virus software if you have WINDOWS 9X. for the others all they have to do is update the software, and run the scan. hahahahahahahaha

Its funny, I was talking to another guy in here - I'm pretty much the virus guru - saying how I didn't think it was that bad in terms of damage, and he made me realize that relative to most users, it would take a lot for me to consider something to be really harmful. A registry edit for a home user would be like monumental in scope - all you ever read for the average end user is "Editing the registry can cause your computer not to start" or something similar. Me, I edit it and/or check it all the time. But that's because I do IT work.

Still....an email was sent to the department that was far more overreactionary than ncecessary. But nobody gives a shit what I think/say/know so it doesn't really matter. :)
