A team working for the San Diego Superior Court has identified the virus that has been wreaking havoc with the court’s computer system for a week now.
The virus is called Win32/Zilcat, according to a bulletin just released by the Superior Court. It’s apparently a new variant of a 2006 virus and it has affected more than 500 organizations worldwide.
The court has put together a team of experts to study the problem, which has completely shut down the computer system at the downtown courthouse.
They’re working on it. In the meantime, staff members are able to pull cases and files manually but can’t do any computer searches, as I just found out when I headed down there to do some research.
