VSU email and web are down. I’ve been out of the office so I can only surmise that this is related to the Denial of Service attack on Wednesday evening.

LikeÂ Bymer it hits unprotected network shares.… Continue reading Nimda
Sheeesh… viruses never go away. What a pain. Had to diagnose a server’s virus problem. It was attacking other servers. Found a computer lab had several viruses. Dunno why the anti-virus software caught some, but not others. All a major pain.
