    Mcafee Saves the Day

    McAfee is already paying for itself, detecting and deleting an exploit discovered only 5 days ago!

    By the looks of it, I think that is an old exploit (drap/drop vuln.) not this latest jpeg problem.

    But I would be concerned if you are getting these detected on your computer both at home and work?

    Sorry I meant the exploit was old...

    But its all good that Mcafee detected it, was it able to clean/delete it or only quarintine it?

    Our VET at work can only quarintine the major viruses like netsky, mydoom and bagle... have to manually delete them... It did block the new Phishbank.trogan going around.

    It deleted the trojan from my system

    McAfee seems to be pretty good like that!
