Christmas IM Worm Circulating

If you use instant messaging, be extra careful this holiday season. An IM worm is going around that tricks users into clicking on a seemingly benign Santa Claus site, but it actually installs a rootkit, shuts down antivirus software, and collects personal information. Yikes! Use caution and ignore instant messages, e-mail, or other contact from unexpected or unfamiliar individuals. (Source: BetaNews)
