It's just the same as any other virus just majorly hyped up so you'll buy anti-virus software - Nice move against the credit crunch.

amirite?

Won't affect me anyway, oh hai mac osx.

While this virus COULD cause problems on the 1st April, this append sounds more like an excuse to promote the f-secure company to me (I read a similar article in a paper last week - Daily Telegraph I think).

To reduce your risk at being caught out by this "bug" you need to do 2 things

1) Ensure your Windows has all the latest fixes on. Run Windows Update and install all the latest Windows and Office fixes.

Microsoft fixed this "hole" last October so if your Windows is up to date you will be OK.

2) Install any anti virus software (AVG and Avast are both free for home use), download the latest virus files and run a full virus scan.

Optional

3) A spyware / malware product would also help. There are a few free ones like Adaware, Malwarebytres and Spybot.

You could if you wish download and run all three.

Unlike anti virus products (where you should only have one installed), there is no problem in having more than one spyware product installed.

To be honest everyone should do 1,2 and 3 above ANYWAY, irrespective of this latest bug.
