    Virus dials 911

    Panique aux Etats-Unis, où plusieurs télévisions sont devenues folles et ont appelé la police!

    Virus Dials 911
    Police Show Up Only to Find Infected WebTVs.

    July 23 - A new e-mail virus has hit some WebTV devices.

    Reports of the virus first surfaced in WebTV user group boards. Those reports say that once the infected attachment is opened, the WebTV shuts down, reboots, then calls 911. Several people have reported this happening and then having a police officer show up at their door.

    A customer service supervisor at Microsoft confirms that 18 customers have called in to report the suspicious WebTV behavior.

    Fixing the Virus

    Microsoft advises affected customers to delete the email and call 1-800-469-3288. Technicians are advising victims to 'hard nuke' their unit - in other words to reset the machine by entering a new code.
