(Crossposted from the Original third world county cos I can’t seem to get WordPress blogs to accept a trackback… *grumble, grumble gripe, complain…*)


eWeek carries the warning today about “Blackworm”—

The worm, which uses the lure of sexually explicit Kama Sutra photographs to trick e-mail users into executing an attachment, is programmed to deliver the destructive payload on the third day of every month…

…At 5:00 p.m. on Jan 24, more than 700,000 computers had already been infected by the worm, according to a stats counter used by the worm author.

Keep your anti-virus software updated.
Do NOT open unexpected email attachments.
Do NOT open attachments that you have not MANUALLY scanned with an up-to-date antivirus software.
Nuh-uh. Don’tcha do it.

Let me try that again:

Keep your anti-virus software updated.
Do NOT open unexpected email attachments.
Do NOT open attachments that you have not MANUALLY scanned with an up-to-date antivirus software.
Nuh-uh. Don’tcha do it.

Please believe me: “What I say three times is true.”

Keep your anti-virus software updated.
Do NOT open unexpected email attachments.
Do NOT open attachments that you have not MANUALLY scanned with an up-to-date antivirus software.
Nuh-uh. Don’tcha do it.

And last, but not least,

“…the [“blackworm’s”] payload is capable of completely destroying important documents on an infected machine…” so don’t come crying to me if you infect yourself.

Please visit the real third world county for up-to-date bloggage, as this blog may not contain all the goodies the real third world county does… especially since I frequently include embedded media files there that, so far, WordPress sliminates every time I trry it here.
