Computer users have something else to worry about.
The latest virus-like worm is infecting computers by the thousands today.
Known as "Goner," it's an e-mail with a subject line that says "Hi." It asks the user to check a screen saver program that's attached.
But if they run the program, the computer is infected and the worm then sends itself out to everyone in the victim's address book.
It can also send itself through the instant messaging program I-C-Q.
Aside from that program, it only affects Microsoft's Outlook and Outlook Express e-mail programs on computers running Windows.
As always, computer experts advise that people not open unexpected e-mail attachments.
