Worm Causes Computer Crash
Updated : Feb 26, 2009
A Somerset man feared a worm virus had struck when his computer crashed - but was shocked to learn the problem was actually a real worm.
Mark Taylor called out an IT repairmen who found a five inch earthworm inside his laptop.
It had crawled into his computer through an air vent and wrapped itself around the internal fan, leading to a total breakdown……. and a rather cooked worm!
Mr Taylor, 45, suspects the culprits were his two cats who are in the habit of pouncing on earthworms and bringing them into the house. He added: "I couldn't help thinking that people get computer worms all the time, but not real life ones."
