    Okay, crappy title but I want you to read.

    1. Microsoft have shut down windowsupdates.com to protect against the upcoming Blaster attack. Windows updates can still be gotten from windowsupdate.microsoft.com, they also indicate windowsupdates.com site is probably not re-opening in the future.

    2. Users of Spybot S&D note a batch of four program and Includes updates is available today (August 15)- but they have problems with all European mirrors serving bad files and running very slow. The EON, Australia mirror is clean and working as normal, also quite fast.

    3. NAV users- there is an Intelligent update today from their site, adding another 61 defs to the list;

    4. Ad-Aware users - there is a new update today.

    Sorry Paul, wrong forum I know, can't figure out where this should belong :)

    actually today's 8/15 IU added 16 definitions. yesterday's 8/14 added 45, per the symantec definitions added page. :)
