You know Symantec has levels as a way to rate there viruses? What is the highest level you have dealt with? I wonder if we'll ever see a level 5?

    I believe they rate the virus' on the possible damage it can do, how quick it can spread and how hard it is to get rid of.

    The virus levels will also downgrade once patches are applied and most of the possibility for damage has been even if something is a 5, it could conceivably drop.

    I don't recall....never looked at the rating for determining a fix, usually keep my clients up-to-date as well as remedy things as quickly as they are I cannot say that I have ever been in a panic state to secure things when a virus was released (plus I don't use Symantec ;) ).

    Did need to run updates on one client for Nimda....otherwise....usually only minor problems where a mobile user gets missed on updates and they need to be caught up.
