Zafi worm hides behind Christmas cheer
by Paul Roberts, IDG News Service
New variant offers seasonís greetings before infecting your PC.

A new version of the Zafi email worm is spreading Christmas wishes along with its malicious code, according to antivirus software companies.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

The way it looks, McAfee and Norton are working on a fix at this time. For now I would use caution on opening emails from people or companies you dont know, and watch which attachments you open.

Happy Holidays
