I hope you all are running some type of virus scanner. There are a couple of new worms out there that have been released lately. The worms are email broadcasters, and flood the net with bogus emails.

This could be a big cause of slow response from the site.

I traced Rswarrior.com a couple of times while it was slow the last couple of days, and the response times were extremely long throughout every node. I would say every node was in the 400 millisecond range. SLOW. Actually, Rswarrior was running about normal, 100-200ms. So the net throughout has been slow.

I know you are all smart, and use protection[/emoticons/emotion-5.gif]

Just keep your virus definitions updated regularly!!! An out of date virus definition is almost as good as nothing!

My company has been getting hit hard since Monday!

I would also recommend that everyone who has their email addresses in their profiles on this site to remove them! There is a virus, which has been hitting my company, that will scan your computer for email addresses in cached web pages and send the virus to it! I would also not recommend putting email addresses in posts. It will promote spam!

isle,
That isnt what I meant... you are fine.

I was referring to people like RivaEric, PhatPerf, etc... those guys have their email address under every post. This will, with 90% certainty, have their email addresses collected by spammerz! And it raises their chance of being sent an email by the virus I was referring to.
