... if you can... not everyone has a patch out for PENTAGONE, yet, but it's nasty
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>
The worm arrives in a message with the subject "Hi" and the following text in the body of the e-mail:
How are you ?
When I saw this screensaver, I immediately thought about you
I am in a harry, I promise you will love it!
Attached to the message is what appears to be a screensaver file, Gone.scr, a compressed copy of the worm.
When the file is opened, Pentagone will infect the victim's PC, stopping a variety of antivirus and security applications and deleting all the files in the folders containing those applications. Kaspersky Lab's AVP, Zone Labs' ZoneAlarm, and Internet Security Systems' Black Ice are among the programs affected.

Woo! Thanks for the heads-up on that one.
The virus is aka "Goner" and spreads via Outlook and ICQ. Targets most AV and firewall products.
Frankly I always download new AV sigs before opening any attachments now - most of them are viruses [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]
