Internet worm Sasser causes disruptions, may spread Monday

A new Internet computer worm caused disruptions over the weekend but experts warned it may spread rapidly when businesses resume work on Monday morning.

The worm, named Sasser, began to spread on Saturday, and unlike a virus does not travel through e-mails or attachments. It can spread by itself to any unprotected computer linked to the Internet.
