FYI: Bugbear eats credit cards, passwords:

Bugbear is an Internet worm with a Trojan horse that attempts to steal your passwords and credit card information. Bugbear (w32.bugbear@mm), also known as Tanatos, is about 50KB long and is compressed with the UPX file compressor.

If you use file sharing, you're vulnerable. If you use Internet Explorer (and Outlook Express, I suppose) 5.01 or 5.5, make sure your software is up to date. If you use IE 6.+, you should be okay. If you use Macintosh, Linux, and Unix, you should be okay.
