What is the Sasser Worm and what can I do about it?

The Sasser Worm is a type of computer virus that spreads not by email or by receiving an infected file, but via a network using a recent Microsoft vulnerability. You don't have to do anything in particular to have your computer become infected. At this time, Technology Support Services is working on a "How To" document to aid in the removal of Sasser from infected machines. In the meantime, this article from the IT web site (Sasser Worm Latest Threat to UH Computers) may help you clean your computer without further instruction.

This answer will be updated as new information and or new instructions become available.
