Hi Lee,

Any idea yet "what" virus we are talking about here?
I hope you can solve it by simply blocking a particular port/range.
In worst case, a quick bandage while searching for a real solution is
temporary block all traffic from the virus machine(s).
At least your machines stay online then.
Please keep us informed (actually, I know you will)  ;-)

Good luck
