writes "Microsoft has released a beta of an offline version of its Windows Defender product, for those instances where the computer is just so unbelievably infected that it can't go online or access security website. Prior to this, techies cleaning up infected PCs would have to use Ultimate Boot CD or something similar, but creating those disks and keeping them updated could be something of a chore. Offline Windows Defender comes in 32 and 64 bit flavors. Will this be a help to people like me who are always cleaning diseased PCs?"Link to Original Source
writes "The Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper is reporting [http://www.ajc.com/news/gwinnett/ambulances-turned-away-as-1255750.html] that hospitals in Lawrenceville and Duluth, Georgia, USA, turned ambulances away after the hospitals discovered "a system-wide computer virus that slowed patient registration and other operations."
One of the hospital "went to total diversion status because it's a trauma center and needs to be able to respond rapidly."
The situation began on Thursday afternoon and is expected to last thru the weekend."Link to Original Source
