BugBear Virus Spreads Quickly on the Internet

The BugBear virus spreads quickly on the Internet. Virus scanner vendors were quick to develop an antidote, but many users without the most current virus database updates are vulnerable (unless they have Abtrusion Protector installed, of course).

BugBear attempts to disable personal firewalls and anti-virus scanners on the host it infects. It also tries to steal information from the infected user's computer. In many cases, the virus is invisible, but an apparent bug may cause the virus to start printing garbage on network printers. As has been the rule with recent aggressive viruses, the BugBear virus spreads very rapidly. In many cases the victims of the virus did not get updated anti-virus software in time.
