Anti-Teardrop patches Tuesday, 18th Nov 1997 - 8:36am AEST.

Teardrop is the latest in the Winnuke series of computer crashers.

To insure yourself against being Teardropped, download and install the winsock and DUN upgrades found on our Other Files page (these patches will also protect you from Winnuke and SSPing).
