Damage figures in India Posted by Mikko @ 05:52 GMT

Word DATA Error [47 0F 94 93 F4 K5]We just got an updated figure from Sanjay Katkar or Quickheal in India about the Nyxem damage over there:

  The news is by today morning I had received confirm reports of 4800
   to 5000 PCs with data damaged by this worm.
  We carried out a phone survey among all our retailers to find out any
  complaints received by them and we came to above figures.
  This figure is from cities of Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Bangalore,
  Hyderabad, Chennai, Nagpur, Nashik & Baroda.
  Now I believe that the actual number of PCs corrupted by this worm
  can be higher as we don't get reports from many of the states
  and cities of India.

It would be nice to get similar reports from Peru or Turkey - two other countries that had large amounts of infected machines during the weeks before the activation. Anybody?
