AIM the Target of Worm - 11/04/05 05:52 AM

A Windows worm is currently targeting users of AOL's AIM instant messaging programme. Chatters are being warned about the worm, which installs spyware programmes and turns the infected machine into a zombie.

Analysts have said that the threat of the viruses generally spread through instant messaging programmes is relatively low, despite the fact that worms targeting IM programmes have grown dramatically over the last year.
