From an Article in Wired News:
Quote:
I send you this article in order to give you advice: SirCam, the annoying e-mail worm that simply won't go away, will turn feral Oct. 16.

According to analysis of SirCam's code, every year on Oct. 16 the worm will delete all the files and folders contained on the hard drives of randomly selected SirCam-infected computers.

Those who have clicked on a file attached to an e-mail that reads, in part, "I send you this file in order to have your advice," have a few days to make sure the worm is not lurking in their computers.
