Initially perhaps conceived as a prank targeting a small community of bikers in central Slovakian region, the worm Win32/Zimuse.A  and Win32/Zimuse.B  has achieved worldwide notoriety.  It is a type of threat that overwrites MBR (Master Boot Record) of all available drives with its own data, making the data stored on the userís computer inaccessible. Moreover, the restoration of the corrupted data is complicated, requiring specialized software or a provider.
