Beagle Virus Exploit
Versions of the 'Beagle' (aka Bagle) virus open a back door on port 2745 (TCP). We do monitor increased scanning activity for this port. Today, a reader submitted a tool which is used to scan for Beagle infected systems. If the tool finds port 2745 open, it will send the 'magic string' to open the backdoor. Next, a URL is send to the system. The Bagle infected system will attempt to download the content of the URL and execute it.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
