    Britney Worm

    Another internet worm has been released through IRC networks.
    The worm is disguised as a .jpg picture named Britney.jpg from Angelfire. Whatever you do, do not open britney links in Internet explorer.
    An exploit taking advantage of holes in Internet Explorer along with Windows Media Player ensures the worm free passage to your computer, where it starts deleting system files and destroying the registry.
    The effect of this is: no shortcuts work, no programs, except those already running will work. If MIRC is running it will proceed by installing a script that announces the url to britney.jpg in all the channels you have joined. Some have mentioned that it even uploads sites.dat from your FlashFXP directory.

    i've been staying clear of IE. Getting used to opera. Not that the same couldn't happen. i've noticed more hotfix repairs the last couple of weeks, than at any time before.

    I've never thought Britney enhanced my PC in any way.
    So, keeping clear of those links shouldn't prove to be any great chore for me.

    Thanks for the heads-up weta :)

    I was waiting to see something like:

    weta has attached the following image: britney.jpg

    But I guess that's just me. :)

    Christina has turned into a skanky little *****.. The whole black hair thing is a bad idea.

    Britney has her moments... but not the brightest thing.
