    viruses that destroy your boot sector are not uncommom its just mass mailing worms will create more traffic on the internet and get noticed more so thats all we have seen for a while. now it seems the old skool do as much damage as possible worms are back.

    i would imagine if this is true its is probably exploiting the latest set of patches microsoft just released.
