    Has anyone heard of the mp3 deleting worm that is going around?

    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2005/04/22/nopiracy_worm/

    It was made by someone in france. It delete mp3's and replace the files with text files. It was made for anti-piracy, but it also goes after people who got legit mp3's.
