Top Viruses in 2004 so far, as reported by F-Secure

Now that different Netsky variants rule the earth (there are 7 different Netsky variants in top 10 right now), it's easy to forget how big problem the Mydoom worm was just three months ago.

To put things into perspective, here's out stats for 2004 so far, sorted by the percent of all infections:

  1  Mydoom.A  46.4 %
  2  Netsky.D  12.5 %
  3  Netsky.B  10.7 %
  4  NetSky.p  9.7 %
  5  Swen.A    2.0 %
  6  Netsky.Q  1.8 %
  7  Netsky.C  1.6 %
  8  Netsky.T  1.4 %
  9  Dumaru.A  1.2 %
10  Sobig.F    1.1 %

I receive about 10 emails with attachments that set off my on board Anti-virus program for my email client.

Only in Yahoo.

In MSN, the file is scanned with McAfee and for some reason, you can still open the attachment. Maybe it is a glitch...

It seems these people have nothing better to do than write viruses and worms.......maybe they should get a real job for once. :thumbsup:
