Case Nyxem/Blackmal/Mywife Posted by Mikko @ 16:07 GMT


We've received some questions on the new Nyxem variant (also known as Blackmal, Mywife, Blackworm, Blueworm and probably something else too).

We have some reports of this virus from the field (enough to make it into top 30 of our virus statistics). However, it's not even near outbreak levels at the moment...and probably won't make it there any more. The worm itself is your typical massmailer which tries to remove different antivirus and security products.
