Stopping the Sasser Worm

A new computer worm, called Sasser, is spreading quickly on the Internet. If you are using a Windows computer, you should protect yourself. Microsoft has set up a web site where you can download and install security update 835732. The site also tells you what to do if your computer has been infected.

If you get an e-mail message claiming to offer a fix for this worm, do not open this message. It contains another worm that will infect your computer.

It's a good idea to run Windows Update regularly to check for Critical Updates. Go to the Start Menu and select Windows Update. Let Update scan your computer, then download and install all security updates.
