Virus, at DEMA 2002 Hilton
Those of you who connected your computers to the Las Vegas Hilton during DEMA should check your computers for viruses! From Tim Baskin, posted on the uw-photo mailing list:
Just a little FYI. I was at the Hilton in Las Vegas this last week during DEMA. I logged on the high speed Internet offered in the hotel room. Lo and behold I got hit with the first virus I had encountered. It appears it was located on the hotel sever and infected any computer the logged on that had sharing turned on. My mistake. Luckily my virus software caught it in time. Just FYI. (I got a a derivation of the Nimda virus the comes from network connections)
