Navy has nearly all of NMCI back online

The Navy has restored full service to 95 percent of the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet portal, installing antivirus fixes developed by Symantec Corp. of Cupertino, Calif., to rid the network of the Welchia worm.

The worm affected more than 50,000 systems late Monday afternoon, Navy officials said. By this afternoon, Lt. Elissa Smith, a Navy spokeswoman, said, nearly all of "the network has been restored to full functionality.'

'We have mitigated the Welchia virus, and we anticipate additional progress over the next few days,' Smith said.

But a few sites on the East Coast still faced clogged e-mail and overburdened Internet traffic this afternoon, she said.

EDS has cut over nearly 97,000 users to the network. Ultimately, NMCI is supposed to support voice, video and data communications for nearly 400,000 Navy and Marine Corps users.
