Microsoft has updated its free tool for removing malicious software from servers and operating systems.
The new version of the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool checks computers running Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows Server 2003 to find out whether they have been infected by the main reported threats on the internet.
The list of specific threats targeted by the tool has been extended to include new variants of Blaster, Sasser, and Mydoom worms.
Microsoft releases an updated version of the security tool on the second Tuesday of each month, at the same time it usually issues patches although this month Microsoft did not issue any new patches.
