Exclamation W32.Blaster.Worm (Restart Virus)



all the computers in Ryerson just got infected, I had to remove it the hard way.

Get the patch for it, trust me, this virus is a pain in the ass, it restarts your computer like every 3 mins, well that's what it was in my case.

Get the patch here:

More details on how to remove the virus here:
