Microsoft hit by virus

Filed under
Microsoft

Health officials in Washington State have issued a warning of a virus outbreak on the Microsoft campus at Redmond, but it's the creation of nature rather than a hacker.

The alert is for a case of measles that was picked up by an employee while overseas and which the authorities are keen to stop from spreading. The US has about 350 cases of measles reported each year.

The advisory is also revealing in what it says about the habits of Microsoft employees. The virus has been identified in just four spots: Microsoft campus, its cafeteria and the Malay Satay Hut and Thai Ginger restaurants.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
