“Mario Worm Targets Retro Gamers” via The Register

Check it.  Beware emails bearing games or links to games.

Mario worm targets retro gamers via The Register

The infected emails actually harbour the Romario-A worm , which in addition to launching a game starring the linguine-loving Italian plumber, also attempt to infect other unprotected computers by mass-mailing copies of itself.The worm is also capable of spreading via removable shared drives.

That’s the meat of the article but there’s more to it than just Romario-A, read the rest of the article.

Anyway, I was just impressed with the Romario-A worm’s ability to spread itself WHILE you get to play Mario!!  evil banana

But seriously, don’t be an idiot and open spam.  Even if the email is from someone you know, don’t just click any forwarded link or media that your pals send you.  Hell I don’t even open fwd’s from my mom!
