There is a nasty and childish Internet virus on the loose at the moment, pretending to be a free PC version of SquareSoft’s Final Fantasy VIII.

The worm comes in the form of an email attachment called ‘FINTAS’ and has been identified by Japanese securities company I-Defence Japan Co. When executed, the virus rewrites the autoexec.bat and proceeds to overwrite all drives on the infected PC.

So beware, and if in doubt, simply don’t execute any programs that come via email.
