Do not press F1 when Prompt when Surfing Internet on Internet Explore on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000

Dear all…

One of guys shared this news with me just now and I think its good for me to share it out on this forum too.

Read the following link as there is a trojan that is exploiting the loop hole if IE on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 OS.

So, if any of your users ask you why they got prompt to press F1 when surfing Internet… advise them NOT TO DO SO!

As mentioned, there may be patch for this on 9th March 2010. We shall see.

Cheerios. Remember… SecUrity is meaningless with U involve.. 🙂
