Telling people to "Stay out of my backyard", doesn't seem very
reasonable on an Internet-connected machine. Finding infected
files that were unknowingly sent, is a good thing! (Consider the
alternative...not finding the files!) Instead of slinging fear, and
posting "keep out" signs, we need to work together on this sort of
problem. Notify the senders that they need to work together to
track the infected machine. (We use Norton AV, with auto-update
here at HSU, and has worked very well) If it weren't for av software,
we'd all be in the same boat.
Please don't hesitate to "reply to all", when I'm on your sender list!
I'll continue using Norton to check incoming, and find that the
benefits of unencumbered communication far outweigh the risks of
virus infections, meant to enslave and to cause fear and grief. :-)
