Belarus SIG #Belarus Verified Virus Information #belarus

It was a little tricky finding this, but there's a description of this
virus (first identified on 30 November), along with advice on how to
remove it and restore files, at the following Symantech site:

http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.prolin.worm.html

It was first identified on 30 November 2000. It's important to have
up-to-date anti-virus software! I just purchased and installed Norton
Internet Security 2001, which has a firewall to protect you while you're
on the Internet and also includes anti-virus software to protect your
e-mail.

The only trouble is, you have to uninstall the Norton before you install
other software. However, the Norton software uninstalls and reinstalls
fairly fast.

Another site to check would be
