The Storm has arrived… [UPDATE]

Wow, I had no idea I had prophetic abilities!  The Storm Worm has reappeared and is extremely dangerous.  Do not open any files with .exe attachements, as they contain this exceedingly malicious virus.  Seriously, it’ll do permanent and unrepairable damage to your hard drive’s Zero Sector, where vital information, like the operating system, is stored.

 Remember, do not open any emails with an attachment that ends in .exe, even if it is from a friend.  ‘Cause if its from a friend, they have already been infected.

 [UPDATE]

Okay, so my source was exaggerating.  Turns out it doesn’t do damage to the hard drive, not typically, although it has been known to happen.  The worm actually turns your computer into a bot, surrendering control of your machine to the programmers of the virus.  Of course that isn’t much better.
