"Kaspersky Lab, an international data-security
software-development company, announces the discovery of a new
Internet-worm, "Prolin," that has been developed by an unknown
hacker going by the pseudonym of "The Penguin." To date, Kaspersky
Lab has received many reports of infections by this worm from
Poland. The "Prolin" worm is capable of operating on Windows
2000. For normal operating under other versions of the operating
system (Windows 95/98, Windows NT), the worm requires the Visual
Basic 6.0 run-time library MSVBVM60.DLL, which is not included in
the package by default."
"Considering the large number of infections in Poland caused by
this worm, Kaspersky Lab has released a special cure that allows
for fast and effective restoring of the files that have been
damaged. The cure is available free of charge on our Web site
