Security experts are warning computer users to be on the look-out for an insulting worm that can seriously harm a PC. Known as Winevar, the worm is spreading via e-mail as an attachment that infects computers running Windows.

    Winevar has a particularly rude insult, displaying the message: "Make a fool of oneself: What a foolish thing you've done!" If users press the ok button, they could lose all the files on their computer.

    After infecting a system, the worm disabled security software and anti-virus programs, launching the W32FunLove.4099 virus.
