"..On the heels of Melissa, the next over-hyped virus is expected to strike Monday, overwriting hard drive data and your system BIOS.

Dubbed the "Space Filler" or CIH 1.2, the virus can overwrite machines with flash-upgradable BIOSes. Several variants of the virus exist, with the dates set to strike on different dates.
