Terible virus going around. Nimda (admin spelled backwards) I spelled
terrible wrong. Oh well.

There are many who would take my time. I shun them.
There are some who share my time. I am entertained by them.
There are precious few who contribute to my time. I cherish them.

Subject: Dealing with computer viruses

Over the last few months, Personal Computer users have seen a sharp increase
in the number of viruses targeting Microsoft Windows machines.  I'd like to
take a moment to inform you of some valuable resources that are available
from RUtgers University Computing Services.  These resources will assist you
in surviving virus epidemics, such as the recent "Nimda" virus, that you may
have heard about in the media.

RUCS has prepared a series of web pages to guide you through the process of
securing your PC from virus and other attacks.  I urge you to read through
these web pages, and follow the instructions for securing your PC.  By
following the instructions, you will decrease your risk of infection from
Nimda and other viruses that propogate across the Internet.  You will also
decrease your chances of infecting the machines of friends, family and

The instructions presented on the web pages are pretty straightforward,
however, if you should need assistance, please contact the RUCS-NBCS Help
Desk at 732-445-HELP for assistance.

I should also mention that it would be wise for those of you who have
Windows PC's at home to follow the same regimen on your home computer.  Home
computers, especially those with permanent connections to the Internet (such
as DSL or cable modems), tend to be more vulnerable to viruses and other
attacks.  The methods we prescribe on our web pages will work equally well
on your home PC.

Please visit the following web page to learn more about securing your PC:

Thank you for your time and consideration.
