Virus Shuts Down NIC Computers

Item: NIC combatting stubborn virus: Ninety percent of faculty, staff computers infected/Alison Boggs, SR

More Info: Teams of computer technology specialists are cleaning North Idaho College’s 1,200 faculty and staff computers – one by one – to eradicate a pervasive and destructive virus that hit campus a week ago. On Friday, information technology staff realized the virus wasn’t responding to the most recent anti-virus software. That’s when the college ordered faculty and staff computers shut down until they could be confirmed safe.

Question: Has your workplace but shut down by a computer virus?
