Top Ten Viruses and Hoaxes in March 2006
 
Sophos, a world leader in protecting businesses against viruses, spyware and spam, has revealed the top ten viruses and hoaxes causing problems for businesses around the world during the month of March 2006.


The report, compiled from Sophos's global network of monitoring stations, reveals that whilst the chart is dominated by long-established threats, a Trojan horse has penetrated the top ten for the second consecutive month. This entry of Clagger-I demonstrates that cyber criminals are continually developing new multi-pronged attacks and mass spamming campaigns to generate illegitimate income.


The top ten malware in March 2006 were as follows:
  1. W32/Zafi-B
  2. W32/Netsky-P
  3. W32/Nyxem-D
  4. W32/MyDoom-AJ
  5. W32/Mytob-EX
  6. Troj/Clagger-I
  7. W32/Mytob-BE
  8. W32/Netsky-D
  9. W32/Mytob-FO
