Hi folks,

For Windows people who may not have Microsoft Auto-Update enabled ...

Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool   
September 2007 (MS Knowledge Base Ref: 890830)
Size: 859 KB

After the download, this tool runs once to check your computer for 
infection by specific, prevalent malicious software (including Blaster, 
Sasser, and Mydoom) and helps to remove any infection found. 

If an infection is found, the tool will display a status report the next 
time you start your computer. A new version of the tool will be offered 
every month. 

If you want to manually run the tool on your computer, you can download a 
copy from the Microsoft Download Center or run an online version from 
microsoft.com. This tool is not a replacement for an anti-virus product.

To help protect your computer, you should use an anti-virus product.  More 
information can be found at <http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=39987>

Cheers, people
