There is a massive crypto worm running around the internet destroying computers and networks.  You need to patch your machine. The reason that patching is so

important to get protected from this work, is that this worm doesn’t require that you click on anything to attack you. Once it’s in your companies network it can start hitting machines around the network that aren’t patched and it could, depending on your patching settings, encrypt every machine in your network.

This is bad.  In just a day 45,000+ computers have been encrypted.

In case you missed it, patch … NOW!!!!!!

If you want to read up, this is the security hole that you need to fix.

This page from Microsoft shows how to ensure that you are fully patched.

It’s Mothers Day in the US this weekend, so you’re going to call Mom anyway. Tell her to patch her computer.
