  • German worm makes PCs kaput

    A computer virus which poses as a message from a newsletter from Trojaner Info, a popular German antivirus portal, has made its debut on the Net.

    The Yarner worm, is a mass mailer, which spreads using its own SMTP routine - if a user is foolish enough to execute an infected attachment (normally called yawsetup.exe). Seven variants of the worm have been detected and users are urged to be particularly cautious of any emails with the subject line "Trojaner-Info Newsletter"
