Blackworm May Have Already Hit

Update your antivirus program and hunker down. A major virus outbreak may well be just around the corner if it isnt here already. A virus referred to as "Blackworm" by some security vendors has apparently already infected more then 2 million systems. At least that's what the virus's own counter Web site is posting.

The number may well be somewhat exaggerated, as at least one security researcher has pointed out the counter is recording hits, not unique IPs. All this and the real destructive payload isn't even turned on yet. Blackworm May Have Already Hit
