Microsoft won't release any patches this month but the malicious software removal tool gains the ability to spot Win32/Alureon
You can get more info about Win32/Alureon here. I ran the malicious software removal tool on several machines in the lab and got pretty much what I expected...nothing. That's because my lab systems sit behind several firewalls and don't get used for cruising web sites and don't get software installed that isn't being tested. Over the next couple of days, however, I plan on running the tool on some desktops of users that are more likely to have some bad stuff. I'll update this page when I get some good stuff to share.
