Software worms have become the weapons of choice for vandals to spread their latest creations, surpassing all malicious-code predecessors in popularity.

Four hours. That's how long it took for a glamorous tennis player to become the talk of the Net, for countless companies to shut down their e-mail gateways, and for a new virus to spread across the Atlantic.

New move in virus battle renders banner ads susceptible to MyDoom variant. A chilling turn in the war against viruses appeared over the weekend. It looks like viruses are now being spread unsuspectingly through Web sites via compromised ad servers.

The SANS Institute Internet Storm Center on Saturday reported that a 'high profile UK website' was among those that had been hit. On Sunday, The Register confirmed on a note on its site that, "early on Saturday morning some banner advertising served for The Register by third-party ad serving company Falk AG became infected with the Bofra/IFrame exploit."

Hackers co-opted several popular Web sites including comedycentral.com over the weekend, using them to infect thousands of computers with a virus that can be used to steal passwords, bank accounts and other personal information.

Displaying an increasingly sophisticated approach to online theft, the hackers gained control of a German online advertising services firm and served up thousands of Internet ads designed to send visitors to one of several Web sites where the hackers had installed the virus. Hackers also can use the virus to plant programs on victims' computers that send out spam, flood monitors with pop-up advertising or attack other Web sites, said security researchers who analyzed the code.

Even if you have a *current* antivirus package installed the viruses that you may receive will probably not be detected by it. There are literally *dozens* of new viruses discovered *every day*.

Most of the viruses circulating today are the one's that utilize new exploits, or new implementations of older exploits that the older scanners are not capable of detecting. What Antivirus Programs are Available'

Antivirus programs can not protect you from this type of virus because the attack occurs before the context of the worm has entered a static (file or mapped memory) state.

In other words - because the worm does not really exist in the same terms as what the anti-virus "expects," your anti-virus software will be incapable of detecting the virus until *after* the virus has had the opportunity to do what it was designed to do.

For most people, getting hit by spyware is a time-consuming irritant. But it was much more for Michael Borque. Rogue software brought down his giant company's network.

Borque is technical services manager for Golden State Foods, an Irvine, Calif.-based food processor that is the biggest supplier to McDonald's (nyse: MCD - news - people ). Last March, an opening created by a piece of spyware allowed a nasty worm to wiggle into the company network computer in Georgia. From there, the worm tried to replicate itself across the entire company network, ultimately overwhelming network resources and knocking out e-mail and the companywide payroll system. It took two weeks for technicians at Golden State, which has annual sales of $2.3 billion, to bring the problem to heel.

Security researchers say they have found the first malware aimed at Microsoft's new anti-spyware software.

Malicious programmers are already sharpening their claws on Microsoft Corp.'s anti-spyware software, even before the application's official release. On Wednesday anti-virus firms said they uncovered the first malware that switches off Microsoft AntiSpyware, along with its other functions. Troj/BankAsh-A, also known as Trojan-Spy.Win32.Banker.jv and PWS-Banker.j, includes a keylogger and attempts to steal credit card details, turn off other anti-virus applications, delete files, install other malicious code and download code from the Internet, according to anti-virus vendor Sophos plc.
