Third of the month Posted by Mikko @ 14:24 GMT

nyxem in India It’s the 3rd of the month and so the Nyxem.E worm has another opportunity to activate and overwrite data files. Nyxem didn’t do that much damage last month and the statistics don’t look to be that bad this month either.

The only country in the world that seems to be affected in any serious manner this time around would be India.

If you look at Nyxem.E infections we've spotted in India yesterday via our Virus World Map, you'll see infection reports from places like Calcutta, Mangalore, Hyderabad, Bombay, Bangalore, Jaipur and New Delhi.

But in any case the activity is lower than last month. So hopefully fewer computers in India will actually be damaged this month than last.
