Sasser Worm is circulating

As some of you already know from the news or internet sites, there is a new virus on the web named Sasser. Sasser uses a security hole in Windows to infect your computer and to spread itself through the Internet to other computers.

Follow the steps below to make sure you don't get infected:

  1. Log in as Administrator on your computer

  2. Go to the WindowsUpdate site and apply any Critical Updates for your computer. (Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools->WindowsUpdate )

  3. Visit this Microsoft Site to scan your computer and remove the virus if you are infected. ( This is Step 3 on the page "Automatically Check for and Remove Sasser".)

    When you have successfully removed the virus (or were not infected) the web page will show you.

    As always, if you have any questions, please call the Computer Support Hotline at (515) 294-1725.
