I hope it just become a news....

Meanwhile, what can we do to protect, beside keeping all Anties (anti virus, anti spyware, anti adware, and other anti) that we used, updated.

Nyxem worm
by Marianna Schmudlach / January 24, 2006 3:26 PM PST

The web counter used by the Nyxem worm now shows over 510,000 infections and keeps rising.

Our internal reporting system shows a steady stream of Nyxems being reported from all over the world, from USA to Australia.

If the worm keeps this pace, Friday the 3rd of February might be nasty - that's when the destructive payload is programmed to strike for the first time.
