Windows operating system from infected servers and clients to
prevent the virus from spreading, and replaced them with the Linux
operating system. Uninfected computers were also moved to Linux, an

Sun Microsystem's StarOffice as its desktop productivity tool.
'The peace of mind--from knowing that viruses which exploit
Microsoft system vulnerabilities cannot touch Linux--is priceless,'
Ho said. The company's 40-odd Sun Solaris and Macintosh computers
remain unscathed, he noted."
