    New MP3 Deleting Virus Appears - Music collection + W32.Deletemusic = Unhappy iPod owners

    Just when you thought your music collection was safely stored as digital 0's and 1's, news of a new virus that targets and erases MP3s off infected hard drives has surfaced. The villainous new worm is aptly named W32.Deletemusic and currently only affects Windows 95, 98, 2000, XP and Vista systems.

    The infection will copy itself to any and all drives it comes in contact with, so be wary of shady looking e-mails and unfamiliar flash drives. Back-up files often to insure that your music collection doesn’t get down with the sickness in a terrible way.
