New Worm Spreading Fast

 

Security experts are warning that a new self-propagating worm called "W32.Gokar.A@mm" or Gokar is spreading fast enough to threaten to overwhelm corporate email systems.

The worm spreads via email and mIRC, and can come with a variety of subject lines and messages.

Although the worm doesn't damage infected computers, it has been given a severity level of "moderate" because of its potential to swamp email servers. So far, it does not seem to have done so, however, and has spread much less quickly than Goner.
