Bad [Computer] Santa

Making the rounds: the latest "idiot user" virus attack is featuring Mr. Kringle himself:

The IM.GiftCom.All worm has made an appearance on several messaging networks, including America Online, Microsoft MSN, and Yahoo.

The worm attempts to dupe you into believing that a friend has sent you a link to a harmless file. If you click on the file, you see an image of Santa. While viewing it, the worm attempts to install a rootkit on your system.

Don't click links, update your anti-v, Ellen will owe me big time if she pulls THIS one down on her system, yadda yadda yadda.
