Microsoft has made available a software update to fix the flaw and offers a guide to those afflicted on its website page Sasser attacks recent versions of Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP. The computer has to be rebooted several times but appears to suffer no lasting damage. "Worst affected will be small and medium-sized businesses that don't have the resources to update their anti-virus software," said Mark Grady, principal consultant at IT consultants Intraliant. "Large corporations have the time and money and will have updated their patches," Mr Grady said. A Microsoft patch was released on 13 April and revised on 28 April. Internet users have been warned that they are more likely to get the virus the more they surf the web. The virus is picked up by clicking on any one of a number of sites. The worm is the third major internet infection after Mydoom in January and Bagle in February but computer experts are saying that unlike previous ones it does not appear to damage the hard drive.
