    Hello everyone,
    I am at my local CTC (community technology centre) place today, where I volunteer and apparently there is found a "Delete_this" worm, (if it is a worm, is it a worm ?) in the file server.
    Does anyone know of this one, or is this used as a means of confusing spammers when (Delete_this) is entered into an email address or url. eg examlpe(delete_this)@example.com or http://www(delete_this).example.com
    I would think the user is instructed to then delete the (delete_this) bit and use as normal o_O
    I have googled this one and have lookad at 2 anti-virus data bases search and no results.
    Any clues would be greatly appreciated, Thank you :)

    btw, I have quite an interest in computer security and just learning to assess hijack this logs :)

    Ok, thanks, I now have found out that I don't have all the information, sorry, the ctc that I volunteer for will endeavour to get the info that avg found, at a later date :)
    Sorry about that, I'll get back to you if need be :)

    As to your problem, more information would be good ;) :D

    In regards to security, this is what works really well for me, very simple to use and maintain.

    You may want to take a look here for further discussion on security and how to make your system that much stronger and here for more.

    Hope this helps...

    Let us know how you go.

    Cheers :D
