Q

Is the litmus virus still a threat?

Is the litmus virus still prevalent or a threat? I know this virus is a month or two old. Is it still showing up?
All viruses, no matter the age, are a threat at all times. There is no "stop" date for viruses. They continue to be ever present in and around us. My own personal view is that the stoned virus from 1990 is still a threat if your systems are not prepared.
