InformationWeek has a short article on the latest MS-spawned IT headache: Nimbda’s Biography.
“This new breed of ‘malware’ (neither a virus nor a worm, but a blend of both) spreads similarly to Code Red in that once it infects a computer, that system begins scanning for new victims to infect. And, just like the ILOVEYOU virus, Nimda also spreads via E-mail. Nimda can also infect unprotected computers used to browse Web sites on infected servers.”
