there seems to be a sudden frenzy of posts about this in other forums. Alot of people have been infected with this worm so i thought i'd post this.

I've not been infected, but as this is only 1mb i thought i'd do it.

Thats the normal 1mb fix needed to protect you're computer against the problem.

You can't. every file it saves is corrupted, but there's a hotfix that you can call microsoft tech support and have them e-mail.

Opening isn't the problem with the hotfix. The hot fix corrupts Gmax files that are saved while it is installed.

Mine appears okay, I can open my old GMAX files with the hotfix installed. I guess other people can't, but that's okay, I'm a one man mod team.

Well, when it comes to writing an expository essay about counter-insurgent tactics, I'm of the old school. First you tell them how you're going to kill them. Then you kill them. Then you tell them how you just killed them.

But if I uninstall the hot"fix", I'll be vulnerable to the MSBlaster worm... :urg:
