I always wonder that PC and Internet users seems not to take care about critical updates, fixes and patches for their PC enironment. Currently my Inbox is bombed with W32.Bugbear.B virus infected E-Mails which doesn't hurts me that much since I'm running Norton Internet Security on all my PCs and Norton already provides an updated virus definition (the yearly bucks are absolute worth to pay) but even without a virus scanner you can protect your PC if every Internet Explore, Outlook Express and Outlook user would update their programs from time to time. Microsoft offers this feature for free (if you have a licensed copy) and a patch, for the security whole Bugbear.B is using, is available for 2 years now! 8O So please - do me a favor and

  • Update your Windows System
  • Update your Outlook Express or Outlook
  • Run a Virus Scanner with latest virus signatures
  • If you haven't done anything from the above for years, run the FREE Norton W32.Bugbear.B@mm Removal Tool

since Bugbear is really a security risk for your PC and your private data:

  • Large scale e-mailing: Sends itself to email addresses harvested from the current Inbox, as well as in the files with the following extensions: .mmf, .nch, .mbx, .eml, .tbb, .dbx, .ocs
  • Releases confidential info: Logs keystrokes
  • Compromises security settings: May allow unauthorized access to compromised machines. Attempts to terminate processes of various antivirus and firewall programs.

Please protect you and your data and protect me from useless E-Mails which will flood my inbox only but will not damage my system - thanks to a virus scanner! ;-)

Cheers ~ Arne
