Preemptive Blocklist and More Downadup Numbers Posted by Sean @ 12:08 GMT

We have an update on the number of infected computers.

Today's calculation is a total of 8,976,038 infections worldwide and 353,495 unique IP addresses.

That's a quite a big difference compared to our last number — there will be a follow up post coming soon to explain the methodology.

Our post last Monday provided a preemptive Downadup domain blocklist.

A new list of potential domains for January 17th to the 31st is now available. Click the image below to view the list.
