[MLB-WIRELESS] Virus Outbreak Getting Worse

Here at Monash University, they put in the mail block on the central servers
pretty quickly (at around 11:30am).
Look at the graph...'nuff said!
I went around checking the anti-virus software on some client machines to
make sure the second layer of defence was up (just in case some emails
slipped through the central servers), and to my horror, some hadn't been
updating the virus scanner software for a few weeks now!
About 4 or 5 client machines received the MyDoom email (of around 80
machines in the department I'm at), but none infected.
