Anyone who isn't running the latest antivirus + firewall should have their hands chopped off anyway :) Would you park your car and leave it unlocked these days? No.

  Hey everyone! Just to warn you all about the w32.blaster.worm virus that is spreading like wild fire. I was fixing a mates computer because his modem wasn't working. As soon as I got the modem working and connected to the internet the computer was hit by the virus within 5 minutes. The virus affects Winodws 2000, Windows XP and Windows NT 4. There is a patch at microsoft now so go download it using windows update if you haven't done already. If you get infected by the virus then it will cause your computer to reboot every time you connect to the internet making itt impossible to download the patch so DO IT NOW! This virus does not pread by email like a normal virus, it exploits a backdoor in windows to install and execute the virus without you even knowing.. you just have to be connected to the internet.
