One of the men from work posted this on the company e-mail - I don't know anything else about it.
The tiel of the e-mail was:
"Malware may knock thousands off Internet on Monday "
Here is the link it had:

Pretty simple to check to see if your computer is affected.

For Windows 7 machines, bring up the cmd screen and type:

ipconfig /allcompartments /all

For Windows XP machines and Vista, type:

ipconfig /all

Look for the DNS addresses in the list produced and check them against the list found here:

http://www.dcwg.org/detect/checking-windows-7-for-infections/

If you find one or both of the DNS addresses listed on your cmd screen matching one in the range of addresses given at the above link, then go here for instructions on how to remove the malware:

http://www.dcwg.org/fix/

If you do have to remove the malware, be sure you check the DNS addresses again after you get rid of the malware.

I haven't the faintest idea what you are talking about.

Repa,

I am not sure but I think this is what he means.

He ran the test and everything was OK, - green light.
woot - is wwe's way of saying YAY
tyvm - thank you very much.

Not sure but I think that is what he is saying. Took me a while to come up with that. I had to read it several times.
