Another Nasty Virus is going around. I've personally gotten about 20 copies in the last 24 hrs. This 'worm' was recently upgraded to HIGH RISK FOR CONSUMERS. Everyone should make sure their Antivirus software is up-to-date.

What can it do?
Quote:
Once running, the Trojan attempts to mail the victim's IP Address to the author. Once this information is obtained, the author can connect to the infected system via the Internet and steal personal information such as usernames, and passwords. In addition, the Trojan also contains a keylogger program which is capable of capturing other vital information such as credit card and bank account numbers and passwords.
