Those were the AutoStart worms, types A through F, I believe.<br><br>Thing was, though, I remember being online and reading about the first report of AutoStart in the wild. A couple hours later, somebody posted a temporary fix (turn of "AutoStart" for CD's in the CD Control Panel).<br><br>Later that day there were a few little applets being distributed worldwide that automatically scanned for the worm and removed it.<br><br>When Sam and I worked at the same place we got quite a few disks in with those worms. We just fixed the disk and sent em back.<br><br>Thing is, though the AutoStart worms were widespread, the fix came VERY quickly, from independent Mac users. We didn't have to wait for a patch from Apple or a virus definition to be released for Virex or whatever.<br><br>
