Malware researchers from Panda Security warn of a new worm, which locks all documents, presentations or emails found on infected computers with a password.
Dubbed Clippo.A, the worm copies itself as PICTURE.EXE and SOUND.EXE to all folders on the system,as well as to removable drives or network shares where it has write permissions.
Its payload involves dropping a file called FILE.EXE in the root of the C: drive and adding a "load=c:\film.exe" startup registry entry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows.
Most importantly, the worm it sets a 721709031350 password to any Word document, PowerPoint presentation or Outlook email it finds.
