Urgent Alert Raised for Blackworm D Day


A high powered group of security volunteers are raising an "urgent alert" for a potentially destructive email worm crawling through inboxes, warning that the worm's payload is capable of completely destroying important documents on an infected machine.

The worm, which uses the lure of sexually explicit Kama Sutra photographs to trick e-mail users into executing an attachment, is programmed to deliver the destructive payload on the third day of every month. Urgent Alert Raised for 'Blackworm' D-Day
