Worm causes computer to crash


When Mark Taylor's computer crashed, he suspected he had a "worm" virus in the system, but was surprised to discover the problem was caused by an actual earthworm.

The discovery was made by IT repairmen who found the 5in worm lodged inside the computer.
The creature had crawled into his 360 old laptop through an air vent and wrapped itself around the internal fan, leading to a total breakdown.
