Microsoft works to a program, part of Microsoft Update, that can automatically remove worms. This program will be made available by the end of this year. With the appearance of increasingly aggressive worms such as Blaster, NetSky and Sasser, many home users have become more vulnerable due to insufficient protection against viruses. In addition, updates and patches for Windows are often not installed. Depending on the level of threat of the worms, the software manufacturer will automate the removal via the new program. Microsoft Update is the name of one of the components of Microsoft’s new patch management platform, called Windows Update Services, which in turn is based on Microsoft’s Software Update Services.
