Lol hardly an MSN virus, you have to accept any file that is being transferred, so any file transferred can potentially contain a virus wink

Simple: Only have people on your list who you know and trust, and only accept files that you know what they are. If in doubt, ask questions before even thinking about accepting.

ISP's never do jack shit about DoS attacks originating from their users/network. They just advise (about a week after you make a report) you to null route all traffic to your affect IP's etc... Which you have already done anyway!!
