New Computer Virus Kills Music Files
With the new computer virus 'Nopir-B' worm spreading through Europe, computer users are advised to take extra caution. Korea's top anti-virus developer AhnLab says the worm, which seems to have originated in France, deletes MP3 music files on infected computers and spreads through peer-to-peer file-sharing networks.
The worm is said to destroy the user's operating system, making it impossible to reboot computers. Experts say the worm has not made its way to Korea yet but advised PC users to upgrade their anti-virus software.
