[H]ard|OCP has a 2 warnings on their front page this morning.   The first has to do with the new Storm Worm that managed over 20,000 infections in 1 day.  This variant appeared last week and is triggered by clicking on on of those pop up/banner ads that tell you to "Click here to fix your PC".  So please don't click there ... don't ever click there!  Pass it on to family and friends now, or you will be spending some time with them later.

The second warning has to do with a Skype Worm, that likes to share.  If you get infected, by following a malicious link, the worm passes itself onto all your contacts via IM, while setting you to DND so you can't even repsond to IM's questioning if you meant to send the link.  Careful with those mysterious IM's, you don't know where they've been.
