Worm causes overheating and disables CPU

For all of you dogs and cats lovers: If you have cats and dirt you may want to be aware of a new type of worm that is infecting computers across the UK -- or at least one computer, anyway. It's called 'earth-worm', and one of the five-inch variety stealthily found its way into the laptop of Mark Taylor. The unfortunate guy began receiving overheating errors and took his machine to a technician who promptly found the unfortunate creature wedged in the cooling fan, slowly crisping thanks to the system's heat. Taylor thinks one of his cats dug up the worm outside and brought it inside, and then the poor thing crawled through one of the cooling vents on his notebook to flee the cat.
