Re: ON TOPIC: a lot of sick computers on this BBS!
Well I didn't actually get the kak. My server rejected the email before I got it. It does show up but doesn't run itself in Juno. You can actually change the execute command in Juno and then harmlessly cut and paste it for others to see if they don't believe they are infected. Tell your Dad's friend that the kak is relatively easy to get rid of now that they know how it works. Complete directions for removing it are in the link above, and once you install the security update patch for Outlook from Microsoft, it will not run itself again unless you tell it to!
Trust me. The worst I ever got was NetBus through ICQ (not really a virus, but a spyware I guess.) This is much much worse in my opinion! Virus scanners will tell you that they removed it, but it is still cloaked in your system. I did figure out how to get rid of that one though! For those of you infected with that one: I bought the actual NetBus program for $15, installed it, checked for the server's existance, then clicked "remove server" and uninstalled the program! It took off the patch of who ever netbussed me in the first place!
Liberals don't mind being lied to . . . they just want to be lied to by someone they trust!
