Infections of a worm that spreads through low security networks, memory sticks, and PCs without the latest security updates is "skyrocketing".

BBC NEWS | Technology | Windows worm numbers 'skyrocket'

This is a nasty one. I've come across a few examples of this already. Keep your antivirus and anti-spyware software up to date and run them regularly. Also keep Windows updated with the latest security updates. If you need up-to-date antivirus software, let me know.
