Some new viruses Posted by Mikko @ 06:39 GMT

Some new smaller-scale outbreaks have been seen lately, including Snapper and Mywife/Nyxem/Blackworm/Hunchi/Blueworm (awful lot of aliases for this one).

The Snapper worm shouldn't be a problem any more though, as it relies on the existance of a hacked webserver in USA. We contacted the ISP behind it yesterday and the server seems to be down now (we haven't received confirmation though). As long as it's down, the worm won't work.
