BlackAngel.B worm spreading via Microsoft's MSN Messenger
A new worm that carries a message reminiscent of movies such as "The Ring" or "FearDotCom" is currently making rounds in the MSN Messenger community according to antivirus specialist Panda Security.
Once it has infected a computer BlackAngel.B uses the instant messenger to send messages to all the contacts in a user's list, disguising itself as a video called "Fantasma" (Ghost). If opened, an image carrying the caption "En el 1er día te espantas, en el 2° te desesperas, en el 3° buscas ayuda y en el 4° mueres" - "on the 1st day you get scared, on the 2nd you get desperate, on the 3rd you look for help and on the 4th you die" appears on the screen, Panda said.
