This is hardly an original attack, but the scale is immense: Those 500,000 attacks occurred in the space of just one week! That's substantial. The bright spot is that according to McAfee, which provided the data in the BBC report, only about 10 percent of those who downloaded the infected file actually installed it.
The infected file incorporates all manner of potential file names. Though the BBC story includes a half-dozen, the real list of names is exhaustive to the point where it would make little sense including it here. It's likely that that list will continue to grow, too, as the attack continues to develop.
You already know what you need to do now, but I'll emphasize: Update your antivirus software, make sure it's running real-time scans, and keep off those peer-to-peer networks.

I don't have a car, or license as of yet, but that should be happening within 2 months of graduation (June 10, 2008). I'm quite excited about this. I hope to have enough to one day own an antique black hearse. My favorite car of all time. I will also be working in a paid internship which will bring in a ton of money, and will also be working part-time in a lingerie shop until school starts.
Recently saw "Ironman" and I must say with the utmost conviction and sincerity....GO SEE IT NOW! It's bloody amazing.
