Latest Trojan Disables Computers on the 19th

Latest Trojan Disables Computers on the 19th

The BAT.Sebak Trojan horse, discovered last week, attacks Windows 9x/ME computers and disables the computer if the system clock indicates that it is the 19th day of the month, 19th hour of the day, 19th minute of the hour or 19th second of the minute. Ouch! Luckily, XP machines are not affected (nor are NT and 2000 systems), but if you're still running a 9x-based OS on any of your computers, look out for this one.
