Yeah - it's a nasty one - even managed to get through the defences here at the Uni.  I have no idea what it does, though.

i've heard they are so called, because it tracks down techy stuff on your computer.like avian bird flu with the nose of a bloodhound.

definately a tricky customer and as well as the university warning, anyone using a works computer are advised to steer clear. this worm sticks up your computer straight away.

It's not fixed if it happens once every few weeks. The site should be considered broken and avoided until they can prevent it happeneing again.
