    (Foreword by Helena Dankof:

    I am forwarding the web page of the CERT Coordinator Center, which is affiliated with Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh. They are considered to be the leading organization in the world, according to Time magazine, in monitoring worldwide computer viruses and alerting the public when a danger presents itself. One can sign up for their free, on-line emergency notification service which I've been getting for several years. Tell your friends about it. You can also write them for information and advice when problems present themselves.)

  • Bug Bear Virus
    From Webmaster
    Sept. 30, 2002

    Well most of you know how damaging the klez virus has been to your computers and your email. I am still removing new infections after over 6 months.

    Please update your antivirus immediately as the bug bear has just made its way into Alaska. that way we dont have to remove this nasty bug before after you get it.

    I have removed several infections already and found out it infected several machines here in Alaska the same day it was discovered.

    This Virus will turn off your Antivirus protection, disable your firewall, may print garbage to your networked printers and the biggest tell tale sign is your computer wants to connect to the net on its own as soon as you turn on your computer.
