New Email Worm on the Loose
Monday, September 24, 2001
A new email worm was discovered on Monday, it arrives in the form of an email with a subject of "Fwd:Peace BeTweeN AmeriCa and IsLaM" and once executed it will email itself to all email addresses in the Outlook address book. It also deletes some Norton Anti-Virus system files, and attempts to install the backdoor.trojan virus which allows your computer to be accessed remotely over the internet. Be sure to get your Anti-Virus program up to date to prevent infection.
