Back Orifice plugged

Data Fellows step in to protect your modesty

Data Fellows has cracked the Back Orifice 2000 problem, it said yesterday. The anti-virus software manufacturer announced the world was safe from being penetrated by the latest version of the infection. Data Fellows has added detection of the Back Orifice 2000 utility into its F-Secure Anti-Virus package. Written by a group calling themselves the Cult of the Dead Cow, BO2K can be used to remotely control a Windows workstation. Outsiders can creep up on unsuspecting users through the backdoor trojan virus, changing information on a Windows 95,98 or NT machine. The Data Fellows software can be downloaded here. ®
