Half a million of PCs infected by e-mail virus : Blackmal.E

Blackmal.E, a virus that was recently released in the wild, will be releasing its payload to more then 500000 servers on February 3rd if we can trust the evidence from a public web counter.

When the worm is executed on the 3rd day of every month, it will destroy all files with the following extensions by overwriting them: *.doc, *.xls , *.mdb , *.mde , *.ppt , *.pps , *.zip , *.rar , *.pdf , *.psd , *.dmp

If you got this worm and your AV can't get rid of it, you can always try this free removal tool from Symantec.
