go here, download the patch and install NOW. http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/bulletin/ms03-026.asp

I've just had this nasty little exploit, quite literally, I could NOT be online more then 60 seconds without this little bugger restarting my PC. If I haden't found the patch quickly, the thing WILL install a worm (It got on my Moms PC) and later on, potentially allow a remote user total control of your PC.

More info a BFCentral, scroll down a little. http://www.bfcentral.com/

Yeah. That little bug took my server and another computer down yesterday. It convinced me that though it serves no other purpose and has no other data, maybe I shouldn't have left it wide open to the net.

while I quite agree that you should get the update. the update has been available since the middle of july. one thing that will help if you've been infected with msblast is to run your firewall this may let you stay online long enough to get the update
edit wrong month

Got a question. Is this likely to affect those of us still using 98?

An Irish Blessing
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again.
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
