Symantec Attacks W32.KRIZ Virus
- By Scott Bekker
Symantec is offering a tool to eradicate all traces of the
W32.KRIZ virus. W32.KRIZ is virus programmed to wipe out hard drives and erase
a computers BIOS on Christmas day.
Symantec suggests users scan systems for the virus before
the holidays, and on Christmas day. Users can use Symantec’s Live Update to
detect signatures for the virus or go to a special site Symantec offers for
detecting the virus. The site is available at http://www.symantec.com/avcenter.
