New Windows Virus Deletes All Your MP3s

Aug 4th, 2007 | By | Category: Digital Music, iPods & Portable Media Players

Antivirus researchers have identified a new Windows virus, W32/Deletemp3.worm, searches your hard drive and deletes all your MP3s. The virus spreads by copying itself onto any drives on your PC, including removable media and flash drives. If you move the drive to a new computer, it gets infected, too.

The virus was discovered July 30th, and is considered a fairly low risk because of the way it is spread. Systems affected are Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.

    Yet another reason to back-up your mp3s to DVD or CD. I use a program called MP3organizer to keep up with what is on each disk.
