DAMN AND MSBLAST

For those of you unfortunate enough to be infected by the MSBlast worm, ZDNet offers easy to follow advice on how to disable and delete it. The worm can manifest itself by causing the infected computer to crash repeatedly, accompanied by an NT\AUTHORITY SYSTEM error message stating "Windows must now restart because the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Service terminated unexpectedly." Once in place, MSBlast scans for other systems to infect and is due to launch an attack on Microsoft on 16 August.
