Massive e-mail virus strikes Disney, Comcast, Google
A new virus based in e-mail ran rampant Thursday, hitting corporate America hard.
Comcast (CMCSA) was forced to shut down its e-mail servers entirely after being hit, a spokesperson said on Twitter. "Apparently, this virus (if you click on it) will pooch your PC if you shut it off if you're infected," she added.
"Good Morning America" weatherman Sam Champion was among those affected at ABC. He posted a message on Twitter that said a "huge email-spam-virus" was "filling up" his ABC News email account.
According to a person at Walt Disney (DIS), the virus struck there at approximately 11 a.m. Pacific time. Post continues after video:
