Worm in Google Video Newsletter

Ok, maybe security isn't Google's strongest point. Google Video has a blog, which you can read it on their site, using a feed reader or by email, the messages being delivered by Google Groups.

Those who subscribed by email to Google Video blog received this week some emails that contained a worm.

"On Tuesday evening, three posts were made to the Google Video Blog-group that should not have been posted. This has now been addressed and fixed.

Still, some of these posts may have contained a virus called W32/Kapser.A@mm -- a mass mailing worm," says Google Video Team.

Fortunately, the worm only copies itself in Windows directory, tries to disable some well-known anti-virus products and sends itself to a list of e-mail addresses as an attachment. On the third day of every month if destroys the documents from the infected system.
