    Greetings PC wielding peeps

    Last night the Goolet (ak Ms Goo) managed to contract the navidad worm, Basically what will happen if you get this (and its become pretty prevelent from what I've read up' is you'll recieve an email from someone you know, and with a subject heading your familier with, upon opening it the worm will replicate and spread itself to anyone in your inbox with a file attached.

    Then the good stuff starts, a little blue eye will appear near your clock, and produce mysterious pop up dialog boxes in spanish, you wont be able to get rid of it, and upon re booting your PC, you won't be able to run anything. Curiously, this seems to be an accidental mistake on the part of the virus-makers. Dorks.

    Anyways, here's the good news, its not too hard to correct the damage.. BUT you need to have instructions BEFORE it hits - you cant get them off the web with a fucked up PC obviously

    So heres fair warning, get yo ass over to
    http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/ven...2.navidad.html

    and print it out, then throw it in your drawer. If the evil blue eye then shines on you, pull them out and follow the instructions to restore your PC to its former glory!

    Printing as we speak, er... Post, that is.

    Word up, Goo. Coalface says, "Howdy."

    Thanks for the Fair Warning, as it were.

    Never open unsolicited email attachments!

    Well, okay, maybe that was harshly put, but it solves a lot of virus/trojan/worm problems.

    Yeh, thats well and good SNM, but this one will come from someone you know, and with a header that you will have been using. Say if youve been emailing someone about space dwarves, using 'space dwarves' as the subject line.... the email will come in from that person, and a subject line of 're:space dwarves'

    Its a little bit more likely to sneak under a lot of peoples noses, and if it DOES, you need this info on hand to restore ya pc

    Thanks Goo, just printed off the removal part of it.

    I didn't print off the technical description part because I didn't want my brain to explode.

    Can we say "ILOVEYOU" Spanish style?

    Thanks for the heads-up, Goo.
