My spin: Did you get this virus? I got so many email messages, carrying this virus, however as I did not open them I did not get infected.
An e-mail worm that looks like a normal error message but actually contains a malicious program continued to snarl computers around the world on Tuesday.

The worm began spreading rapidly Monday during business hours in the United States, where the world’s computers are concentrated. Many recent outbreaks began during Asian business hours ó overnight in the United States ó allowing anti-virus vendors to develop new defenses by the time U.S. companies opened up shop. (full story)
