Wscript.Kak gets the first Virus Press in the New Millennium

[ZDNET] Even though the virus Trojan.Kill has not done any known damage yet, a new worm is set bring less damage, but more nuisance. Wscript.Kak is said to spread to systems running both Microsoft Windows 98 and Microsoft Outlook Express 5.0 e-mail client. It can not only spread through e-mail, but if a user's Internet Explorer security settings are set to low or medium, the worm will infect the system without any user action.
