One of our machines got hit with the Antivirus System Pro malware. This program masquerades as an anti-virus and it's main objective is to get you to buy the fake program. It tell you your system is infected with different viruses and shows never ending popup windows and alerts. The infected machine had Avast Home Edition and Windows Defender but still got infected.
When a machine gets infected, we don't just reboot. The problem can get worse because the malware can load itself on startup, possibly doing more damage. So the first thing I did was to disable the network connection. I don't want any data being sent to another computer on the internet, or get another machine infected.
We just signed up for our very own Google Wave account and currently trying it out. We don't see it replacing email or IM but it's under development so it can only get better. We see Google Wave as a powerful chat tool when we need to discuss complicated ideas and we need more than text messages to communicate.
We have a few Google Wave invites left so if you are looking for one, please contact us and we'll be happy to send you an invite. Offer good while supplies last.
