Google Delivers A Virus

    November 10, 2006

The Google Video team accidentally sent out an email to 50,000 recipients of a Google Video email list, according to eWeek.

    “On Tuesday evening, three posts were made to the Google Video Blog-group that should not have been posted,” Google said in a statement. “Some of these posts may have contained a virus called W32/Kapser.A@mm – a mass mailing worm. If you think you have downloaded this virus from the group or an e-mail message, we recommend you run your antivirus program to remove it.”

Computerworld reports Google has confirmed that internal protocols are now in place, to prevent this from happening again. Let’s hope so.
