    I know a lot of people are asking about blaster worm these days, but my questions are a little different. I have norton anti virus, and I am attached to a school network. In order to use the network you need to DL a blaster worm patch (symtec) which I had, but managed to get the blaster worm anyway. So I got rid of it, and dled the patch again, and ALSO downloaded the windows update security patch. my question is, having both of these, can my computor still get blaster worm? Do these even help ?

    Very doubtful. But the MSblaster worm is last month's threat. There are new ones coming out every day.
    I suggest 4 things.
    Keep your M$ patches updated.
    A good firewall
    A good antivirus programs with current definitions
    Good back-ups

    Oh, and one other thing, have TSG bookmarked! :)
