"LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla.-In a rare discussion about the severity of the
Windows malware scourge, a Microsoft security official said businesses
should consider investing in an automated process to wipe hard drives and
reinstall operating systems as a practical way to recover from malware
infestation."

"When you are dealing with rootkits and some advanced spyware programs, the
only solution is to rebuild from scratch. In some cases, there really is no
way to recover without nuking the systems from orbit," Mike Danseglio,
program manager in the Security Solutions group at Microsoft, said in a
presentation at the InfoSec World conference here."
