Shocked
Last night I monitored my firewall activity for about an hour and identified 92 F2S users who's computers were trying to access port 135 on my computer. This suggests to me that these users' computers are infected with the Blaster worm or one of its derivatives.

I hope all Windows users are fully protected with a firewall and up-to-date anti-virus software. If your are not, and want to know if you are on my list, e-mail me and I'll let you know.

I'm a Mac user myself, so I have built-in protection against Windows viruses and worms, but I still have a firewall and anti-virus software.

Macs have built in protection against Windows viruses? Razz I think it's more likely that Windows viruses don't have any effect on Macs Very Happy
