W32.Deletemusic – Erases Your MP3’s No Matter Where You Store Them

3 08 2007

Another great article from ARS Technica entitled, “Average PC is a smorgasboard for a new MP3-eating trojan” points out that all your MP3’s may be in danger.

[…] an avid MP3 collector in the butt if a new worm makes its way into their computers. A newly-uncovered worm called W32.Deletemusic does exactly what its name implies—it goes through a PC and deletes all MP3 files in sight. And that’s it. Simultaneously low-threat and highly annoying, the worm makes its way from computer to computer by spreading itself onto all attached drives of a given PC, including flash drives and removable media.

Obviously the W32 prefix leaves us Linux and Mac users in the clear, but the Windows folks out there should keep their guard up.  Make sure you have your anti-vir apps up to date with the latest definitions and, as always, watch what you download and which emails you open.

Keep it secret.  Keep it safe!
