Viruses are a constant threat to your work and privacy. The Helpdesk always prioritizes support requests involving viruses. It is not our policy to distribute specific warnings about new viruses due to the sheer number of threats.

Fortunately virus outbreaks are extremely rare within Warwick Business School due to the combination of firewall, antivirus software and user skill available at WBS. Virus outbreaks on home computers can still cause problems for WBS users however and so all users are strongly advised to take security precautions such as running antivirus software on their computers.
