Exclamation YOU LOVE BRITNEY, watch out.

This is something a few friends of mine brought up to my attention and I thought best to let you all know and decide if it is important to you. They have warned me in the past about alot of viruses and computer internet problems before and have always been right. But again it is up to you to decide if this affects you are not. If interested read below.

Another internet worm was released through IRC networks. The worm is disguised as a .jpg picture named Britney.jpg from Angelfire. Whatever you do do not open britney links in Internet explorer.
An exploit taking advantage of holes in Internet Explorer along with Windows Media Player ensures the worm free passage to your computer, where it starts deleting system files and destroying the registry.
The effect of this is: no shortcuts work, no programs, except those already running will work. If mirc is running it will proceed by installing a script that announces the url to britney.jpg in all the channels you have joined. Some have mentioned that it even uploads sites.dat from your FlashFXP directory.
