First JPEG Virus Posted To Usenet

This could possibly be the worst viruses yet! Earlier this month Microsoft announced a problem in their GDI driver that processes the way JPEG images are displayed. Someone has finally posted an exploit to Usenet. Easynews, a premium Usenet provider, found the virus Sunday afternoon. Up-to-date information about how we found it and what it does is located at www.easynews.com/virus.txt. When this picture is viewed it installs remote management software (winvnc and radmin) and will connect to irc

"Heh, Norton Antivirus wouldn't even let me try it. The heuristics grabbed it before it was even on my desktop. Now that is impressive. "
