    This is a proof of concept virus, so low threat.

    Not really sure how it works, need a more technical article to come out. CNet is really vague.

    Edit: Read about it at symatec, seems that this still requires an ill-informed operator to run something before all hell is let loose.

    That means that viewing photos in Critque corner is safe, so long as we are careful enough not to run all exec files.

    If a person or webby claims to send u a self exec zip, right click -> Open with ...Winzip, Winrar etc.
