We're at the end of the Alphabet Posted by Mikko @ 17:44 GMT

So now we are running out of letters. Netsky.Z was found two hours ago.

First Netsky was found on 16th of February this year. So that's 26 variants in 65 days. Two new variants for every five days...

Like some previous Netsky variants, this one starts a DDoS attack againts three websites:

www.educa.ch - The Swiss Education Server
www.medinfo.ufl.edu - Office of Medical Informatics at University of Florida
www.nibis.de - Niedersächsischer Bildungsserver in Germany

We have no clue why these sites are being targeted.
