    It's been out for a few days now, and I just realized when updating my NAV that I got NAILED with it.

    Not real destructive, but a total resource hog and you'll notice a big peformance decrease. That's what tipped me off. My machine was lagging, so i ctrl-alt-del to hit my task manager and saw prolly fifty 1216_up.exe processes running. If you see that (Win NT/2K/XP) grab the tool below.

    Theres a ton of these things going around right now. I chat on IRC with the people I play video games with, and people get infected left and right. There are viruses out there that message you, asking you to click on a link, and bang you got it that easy.

    I'll never understand why their "virus makers" do the things they do, and waste their knowledge with messing with us.
