Malicious code attacks over instant messaging networks are up almost 80% over last year...The total number of threats for 2007 so far is 226...That number is a 78% increase over the same period last year...The code used in the attacks was either brand new code or a variant of earlier code detected by the IM Security Center.

The new worms included Exploit-YIMCAM, Hupigon-SJ, InsideChatSpy, SpyPal, StealthChatMon, Svich and YahooSpyMon...the attacks are moving beyond the nuisance stage and getting more malicious...
