Why have a VirusList As a result of mass infections from worms spreading on campus and exploiting Microsoft vulnerabilities, Clemson has instituted a system known as the VirusList that disables machines with this type of behavior. This setup consists of a monitoring system to detect abnormal network activity that is typical of worm and virus infected workstations. Once detected, the workstation is placed in the virus list and its network connectivity is disabled to prevent it from infecting other workstations on the network.

The user that is listed within the Network Registration entry for that system should receive an automatic email notifying them it has been disabled.
