This virus won’t delete any of your files. It won’t self-perpetuate itself across the Internet using your e-mail address. What Newton will do, however, is completely demolish your desktop.
The Newton virus can be loaded onto any MacBook via a standard USB key — the malicious amalgamation of Pac-Man, Apple, and Badtz-Maru is but one example — and when the unsuspecting victim comes back to his laptop, he’ll discover that all the icons on his workspace have collapsed, as if they could actually be affected by real-life gravity.
Making use of the built-in accelerometer, the Newton Virus will actually shove those icons around when you tilt your Apple Macbook. Other than this, it causes no real damage… you just have to figure out how to stop it.
