    ...just wondering.

    New worm ( I think) that does nasty stuff to the HDD ?

    Will have to check this out tomorrow, as I've heard a couple of reports of some nasty things related to this ...

    Thanks in advance.

    I had this along with seven other viruses on a punters machine recently. I am not sure which virus was actually messing things up the most but I did have to do a complete re-install of XP and I usually avoid that!

    Here is a decent explanation of what the little blighter does http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_101100.htm

    Note Agobot or gaobot are two of it's aliases!
