tecChannel.de: Virus: JS.Gigger.A@mm deletes hard disks
People using a PC next to their amiga should read this (German) article of tecChannel. According to it there's a new computer virus named 'Gigger' underway that can have desastrous effects. The virus is written in Javascript and spreads via email and IRC (Internet Relay Chat).

When the virus comes to work it deletes the contents of all files ending with .asp, .htm and .html on your hard disk, all that resides is a file with 0 bytes. Additionally the virus places the command to format the hard disk after a restart of the computer in the start file "autoexec.bat".
