[ April 4th 2005 ]

A virulent internet worm offering unaware internet users footage of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt has begun to propagate across the internet. The W32/Ahker-F worm spreads via email using messages like, "Watch Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt caught on tape!", TechTree is reporting. If the attached file, Clip.zip, is opened and executed, the worm will attempt to spread to other email users.

"People's appetite for salacious gossip is insatiable, and some may be tempted to run what appear to be pornographic movie files distributed across the Internet," said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant for Sophos. "However, virus writers have a long history of disguising their malicious code as this kind of content. Everyone should be very careful about what they choose to run on their computer."

Antivirus makers are recommending internet users update their products and avoid executing attachments delivered via email.
