Beware The Worm This Friday

An Internet worm that's been circulating for a couple of weeks is set to destroy files on infected personal computers this Friday, Feb 3. Security company Symantec has dubbed it "W32.Blackmal.E@mm," but other security companies have given it different names including "Nyxem," "blackworm," "Grew.A," "My Wife" and "Kama Sutra." Whatever it's called, it has already infected 300,000 systems, according to the Sans Institute but, by PC worm standards, it's still considered a relatively low threat.
