Now this isn't a piece of GPS news, but it is an urgent warning to any of you that DO NOT HAVE AntiVirus Software installed.

Although the team here are fully protected from the latest viruses, including the new SoBig-F virus that came out on 19-AUG-2003 and has been causing havoc around the internet, we are being swamped with infected virus warnings which are being quarantined and deleted. We are fully protected, but I alone am receiving an infected email every 3 seconds, that's a staggering 1200 infected emails an hour, and an even more staggering 28800 infected emails in every 24 hours! Although this isn't able to infect us, because we have adequate AntiVirus protection, it is slowing down our email, and mostly mine!


If you think you can outrun viruses, you can't! If you don't want to pay for AntiVirus software, go and download one of the free versions, but make sure you are protected, and even more so, make sure your AntiVirus Software updates itself regularly!

Free versions of AntiVir, GriSoft AVG AntiVirus are available. There are also very good AntiVirus software that can be paid for from Symantec/Norton, and McAfee VirusScan just to name a few.

If you are not protected, you should be very worried!
