One of our business customers was infected last week by an especially “vicious” virus, a WORM generically known as an AUTORUN/SHORTCUT VIRUS. The virus came from an infected USB or External Hard Drive- It attached itself to the “legitimate” autorun files of the device. The virus then does what it is designed to do...infects the network-share!!!. It was very cleverly designed.
The business contacted us here at Banx Systems and immediately the team swung into action, first step, to halt the spread of the virus and then to identify the computers that were infected and then isolate the computer that was the originator of the virus. Once this was done we used specialised programs to clean the virus from ALL the computers affected.
Here are 3 “tips” on “How to minimise having your computer infected”.
