Network Associates has published a new stinger removal tool to protect
against and clean up after Netsky.J. Still no virus definitions for the
central servers (therefore, none for desktops) but they will be available
sometime tomorrow according to Symantec.
To obtain the Stinger removal tool to protect against Netsky.J visit:
