    "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."
