Due to increase in submissions, W32.Netsky.Q (aka W32/Netsky.p by McAfee)
has been upgraded to a medium/level 3 threat. Currently the only virus
definitions available to prevent/detect Netsky.Q at the desktop level are
beta definitions. I have installed these on the central servers and they
are pushing out to desktops now.
If using the on-campus version of SAV, you will not be able to click Live
Update in order to force your SAV client to update to these beta
definitions, so you'll need to be patient or go to sarc.com and navigate
your way to download and install the beta defs yourself. In any case,
desktop computers will receive the definitions throughout the morning.
There are currently no stand-alone tools with detect and clean up
Netsky.Q, but if tools are made available I'll update our local pages and
notify the list.
Questions or problems regarding Netsky should be directed to CIT Helpline
at [log in to unmask] or 6-2604.
