Microsoft Warning over virus!

Dont know if anyone has seen in the papers or heard but a massive virus is goign round possibly crashing comptuers and deleting files. Apparently there is a gap allowing this virus in. Taken straight frmo the paper - "The gap allows computers to be infected using programs mali-infected inserted into seemingly innocous image files.
In most cases an attack on a computer needs its user to download or activate a suspect file.
But because of the gap, a computer could be infected by simply viewing aa webpage, e-mail or instant message containing suspect image."
Thought it was best to let you know as its clearly very malicious. If you have todays Daily Mail its on page 8 at the bottom. with heading "Microsoft loophole leaves comptuer open to attack"
