                                                A highly contagious computer worm infected over a quarter of a million computers over the weekend, choking many internet and telecommunications networks as it spread.

The worm, known as "SQL Slammer", is thought to have surfaced in Asia on Saturday morning. By Sunday, an estimated 250,000 computers had been infected worldwide, according to the US anti-virus company McAfee.
