Well, we have tried to get the customers to update their
systems but there is only a few that actually do this. So
we have been forced to take these steps. Update Your OS,
clean Your box and we will let you in again.
We will try to get the customers to install a anti-virus
protection and a firewall to limit the chances that they
will get infected again.
