It also renames and moves all .zip and .jpg files into C:\
Just sent out the warning to my lusers an hour ago and pushed a forced definition upgrade to all of their PC's and started a scan on their mailboxes.

<font face="Comic Sans MS">I wish those virus writers would put their skills to use working at Microsoft or other software companies trying to develop better products, such as an operating system that crashes only once every 1000 years or so.
