Publisher's Description

Microsoft Sasser (A-F) Worm Removal Tool will help to remove the Sasser (A-F) worm from infected systems. Once the tool has run—after the End-User License Agreement (EULA) is accepted, it automatically checks for infection and removes any of the targeted worms that are found. After running, the tool displays a message describing the outcome of the detection and removal process. The tool can be safely deleted after it has run. Also, the tool creates a log file named sasscln.log in the %WINDIR%\debug folder.

Wish I could see the source for that Sasser worm!

Just found out a highschool kid coded it. Anyway, this tool does what the description says it does with no malfunctions.

Wow, UrbanRiot thinks he knows everything. He loves calling people children....hmmm, usually the one doing the "name calling" is usually the immature one. Stop the name calling urbanriot and just state your facts/opinions about Microsoft. Name-calling went out with the dinosaur and immature people. :-) Btw, you would make a great Microsoft sales rep since u seem to think that Microsoft can do no wrong.
I give it a 1 not because this is a poor piece of software, but because of Microsofts poor track record on security and bugs in their software in general.

Revoting to balance the vote from stupid / children / poor network administrators who don't know how to prevent virus' from infecting their networks. Who let's 10 year olds administer their networks anyways?!

Thanks to MicroSoft ... for this fragile window... I can not believe that a virus can infect all of our networks in one shot... All serious bussiness they use Unix or Linux... MickyMouse Bussiness you have to bare with MicroSoft..

You go to bed. But before you do, you lock all the doors and windows. Along comes a burglar that realizes if you throw a rock through a window, it will open it, and he can get inside and do whatever he wants. Are you at fault? You did the best you could or would be expected to do. You locked it all up tight, and found out the hard way that nothing short of bullet proof glass would stop the burglar. After the Window gets broken, you replace it with tempered glass... as well as all the other windows you know about... isn't this what Microsoft has done? Orlando, you posted a bad review on something you haven't even used. Why don't you stick to something you know about... sorry, then you'd have nothing to stick to.

Orlando Microsoft does do a pretty good job of security. So good that it is better then Linux(take time a do some research, speed of patch release and the such), I am a dual user so don’t go flaming me about this. The major problem is that most viruses/trojans/worms attack Windows not Linux for one simple reason... Home users use Windows, the average home user is not knowledgeable enough to run Windows Update and keep their anti-v software up to date.

we always like to topple the succesful ones, of course many folk are effected by this worm because 90percent of pc's use windows, and nothing is foolproof, not even linux.

The problem with Microsoft is that nearly everyone uses their software. Therefore, people that make malicious software target M$. You can not fault microsoft for releasing security updates to thier software. In fact, you they should be complemented on their quickness when it comes to updates. If you have a problem with this, then try writing a program as indepth as windows and lets see how good at making it secure you are. Also, hackers tend to be very good at what they do, and I'm sure if Linyx were as popular as windows, then their would be more security problems with it.
