"..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.

Anit-virus companies, still counting the cash from the hype over the Melissa virus, spread word this week that the CIH virus will activate Monday. Unlike Melissa, which was fairly harmless, CIH poses a real threat if your machine has it. The solution? Make sure you have up-to-date anti-virus software.."
