Xfce Worm? This can't be what it appears... Can it?


I've been search the 'Net but can't find anything to explain
what you will see in the attached photo. OK, this maybe a dumb question, but is this an application for Xfce or is Xfce telling me the computer in infected with a worm? I ran ClamAV last night and it reported the system was clean.
Thanks.

I don't know if ClamAV has very good detection: I think Kapersky has a version for Linux that you might want to try. Either that or Antivir...

And also, worms, is a bsd "game" that is really a console "screensaver". rain is another one. cmatrix is the best, though (see SBo).

In any case, if I ever were to write a worm I would make sure that it didn't show up in any menus. :P

I agree, I think it's just a game click it

Thinking it couldn't be a "worm" in the negative sense, I did just that. Nothing happened.

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to reply. Greatly appreciated.
