No Solution at Hand for the Malware Naming Mess


I'm rooting for the Common Malware Enumeration initiative to succeed, but I'm thinking it's just going to be another name in an already crowded field.

In the heat of a malware outbreak there is usually a lot of confusion about what variant of what worm is involved? Is it just a new variant or a completely new worm?

Inconsistencies between vendors about variant indices and virus names add to the confusion. No Solution at Hand for the Malware Naming Mess
