PC Pro UK: Viral Overload

October 24 2003

I've had several conversations recently about my personal favourite email system, Lotus Domino, and not one of the Domino systems I see or maintain has participated in a propagation incident for either SoBig or Blaster.
A long and sometimes rambling article by Steve Cassidy about the mistakes made when anti-virus protection isn't taken seriously.  Too right in pointing out that Lotus Domino is a system that hasn't been impacted by the security woes of others.
Thankfully, those security woes are finally taking their toll on the company responsible for them.
Connors said distractions due to security issues, namely the Blaster worm, kept customers, sales teams and channel partners from closing sales.
