Looks like there might be another virus making the rounds. This popped up on JB108-10:

29483

... as well as a few others.

At least it's contained/quaratined.

Yeah, this has been there since the beginning of the semester. Also, when a machine has been scanned it'll give a warning (bottom right hand corner either Norton or SpySweeper) that it needs to restart to clean. Unfortunately, you can ignore the warning, or close it (which is what most of the students do when they come in and sit down).

This transfers to USB drives too; and is one of the things student's home virus software has been catching as they move their work from there to here.
