Warning
*******

All Kuang Eleven users who have received an update in the past
few weeks are at risk!

Two viruses have been released via the update server attached
to different versions of the file rexxkuang11.library (normally
placed in LIBS:), and also affecting the file C:Mount.


Details
*******

The two versions of the library which were infected are shown
below, along with some details:

rexxkuang11.library 0.36 ( 4/02/99)
===================================
- File size: 31,172
- Attaches itself to your C:Mount file (any version) unless
  SnoopDOS is running
- Performs "run >NIL: newshell TCP:2551" (both the library and
  C:Mount)
- Allows remote CLI (shell) access to your computer
- Calls itself "Vaginitis #2" by "STD"
- Does NOT spread to any other files (other than C:Mount)

rexxkuang11.library 0.27 (27/12/98)
===================================
- File size: 26,532 bytes
- Performs "RUN >NIL: newshell tcp:2333" when the library is opened
- Allows remote CLI (shell) access to your computer
- Calls itself "Vaginitis #3" by "STD"
- Does NOT spread to any other files


Solution
********

 You should have received version 0.37 (or later) of
rexxkuang11.library with this update. You should verify this by
typing:

Version LIBS:rexxkuang11.library FILE FULL

You should get the response:

rexxkuang11.library 0.37 ( 5/02/99)

or a later version.

 Reboot your system (if possible, do NOT go online).

 Replace the file C:Mount from your original disks, or some other
  reliable source.

 Reboot AGAIN.

If you have any copies of rexxkuang11.library versions 0.27 and 0.36,
they should be deleted, as these were never legitimately uploaded to the
update server.
