Default Hacker's Fight for control over the exploited Win2K

A war has broken out between hackers behind viruses that exploit a recently discovered loophole in Windows 2000. The viruses written by the competing hacker groups are fighting it out for supremacy on infected machines.

Some of the variants seek out and delete rival viruses they find on machines they manage to penetrate.

The slew of malicious programs exploiting the loophole caused trouble for many organisations early this week as the bugs began infecting computers.

Whoo hooo. Great jopb guys....man i always wondered why i update my system when new product become available. Gee here is your reason. XP has been out for 3 or 4 years now yet some people cling to their old OS. Well Happy Birthday to y'all. I dont mean to sound mean but that is why new application and programs are written to help prevent this. Sometimes people just ask for trouble and they get it in the worst kinda way.
I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!
