Microsoft Updates Malicious software removal tool for zotob



I just read that Microsoft has released an update to the Malicious software removal tool. The updated version is not yet available at Windows or Microsoft update, but from Microsoft’s download center.


It should be able to deal with the following new bugs…

* Zotob.A
* Zotob.B
* Zotob.C
* Zotob.D
* Zotob.E
* Bobax.O
* Esbot.A
* Rbot.MA
* Rbot.MB
* Rbot.MC

I’m glad to see them getting this update out the door.
