    mcuser999

      Hi,

       

      I just had a McAfee block a Buffer Overflow from a website and I need your opinions whehter I should reimage my OS?

      How can I be sure if this had been removed or blocked?

       

      I assume, if it was blocked, then I shouldnt be worried? Correct?   

       

      Ok....I managed to restore my fresh clean image of my Windows OS just to be on the safe side.

       

      But if McAfee reports it as being BLOCKED, then I should of been safe from this?

       

      Thanks.
