Easynet sends warnings to virus victims
A UK Internet Service Provider (ISP) is contacting customers it believes may be infected with the Nyxem virus.
When a computer is infected by Nyxem, it visits an online Web counter that counts how many PCs have been infected. Easynet is monitoring traffic to this Web counter and sending a warning to every user that visits it, explaining that their machine could be infected.
