Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 5:37 pm

Some Windows 2003 users have been experiencing problems with the operating system after CA antivirus software wrongly detected part of the operating system as malicious software last week.

At the heart of the problem is part of Windows’ built-in security, a file called Lsass.exe. This was wrongly detected as a virus by CA’s eTrust software and was deleted, causing some servers to crash and fail to reboot.
