Nimda re-surfaces


Nimda has taken on a new form and is yet again attempting to infect PC’s. Experts have stated that the worm is not spreading as fast as the September version and doubt it will be as serious. However we advise users to look out for attachments called “SAMPLE.EXE”. The original Nimda virus carried an attachment called: “README.EXE”.

There are several ways the virus can be unleashed, the most common ways are:
· Viewing the infected web page without the security feature switched on,
· Through network shares, and
· Opening a malicious email attachment

McAfee product marketing manager, Jack Clarke states that this new version of Nimda “was not spreading like variants in the past because people have largely put detection in place”
