Listen up, people. I got the Pretty Park worm (similar to a virus) from four different people today. If you get an email with an attachment named “Pretty Park.exe” that has a South Park icon associated with it, DO NOT execute the file (i.e. don’t double-click on it). If you have already done so, you need to visit this page for instructions on how to purge this damn thing from your computer. And, just as a general rule of thumb, don’t open ANY *.exe files that people send you.
