A Macintosh based worm is spreading through the instant messaging application Apple iChat. In an attempted attack, users will receive the file LATESTPICS.TGZ and when double clicked will release 2 files called LATESTPICS, and a hidden resource file name called _LATESTPICS. The worm does not execute though until you click on LATESTPICS. This worm deletes files from your computer.

Are you affected?
It is advised that you do not open unexpected files received from Apple iChat or simillar applications. If you feel that you may be infected, update your antivirus software and run a full system scan. You may refer to instructions offered by the antivirus software you are using.
