Bagle Worm Still Swarming over the Net

The Bagle worm continues to plague the Internet over three years after it first appeared, with many anti virus engines unable to keep up, a security vendor has claimed. In an analysis of the phenomenon released this week, Commtouch Software said its virus outbreak detection research Labs (VRDL) were still finding an average of 625 new variants of the mass-mailing worm per day, or up to 1,000 on peak days.

The total number of new variants -- defined as versions giving differing MD5 checksums -- now stood at over 30,000 since the beginning of 2007 alone. PC World - Bagle Worm Still Swarming over the Net
