(KSL News) -- Microsoft is urging all its customers to be careful opening email or following web links from unknown sources.

The company says computer hackers released a new virus more dangerous than any it's seen. The virus puts almost any Windows system at risk of infection by viewing an image sent through email.

Microsoft is working on a solution, but says it won't be ready until next week at the earliest.
