    VBS.Taber is a worm that attempts to spread through the KaZaA file-sharing network as "Britney_and_Madonna_fucking.mov.vbs
    Just got this from norton site, bet this catchs a few.

    The worm attempts to delete C:\Windows\Explorer.exe and make some configuration changes to Internet Explorer by editing the registry keys.

    The worm will only execute on Windows 95/98/Me systems.

    I don't get it.

    If it manages to delete explorer.exe aren't you already pretty much f*cked?
    Tinkering around with IE seems a bit like overkill.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. And wasn&#39;t something like this posted somewhere on the board already?

    Well in either case, thanks for the heads up.

    And I am glad to see that the older OS&#39;es get some too.
    If XP gets viruses alike 9x, at least XP looks better

    I found it. Straight from Symantec&#39;s site:

    VBS.Taber is a worm that attempts to spread through the KaZaA file-sharing network as "Britney_and_Madonna_fucking.mov.vbs."

    The worm attempts to delete C:&#092;Windows&#092;Explorer.exe and make some configuration changes to Internet Explorer by editing the registry keys.

    The worm will only execute on Windows 95/98/Me systems.

    Here&#39;s the link: http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcen...echnicaldetails
