Video: WorldMap showing Storm-worm infection

Hackers and malicious coders are always the sneaky and surprising ones. They took advantage of a storm last week that his Europe by spreading scam e-mails purportedly containing details about the storm and it effects with subject lines saying “230 dead as storm batters Europe” that contains a virus.

Named Small.DAM, the virus successfully spread and infected computers world-wide. A video uploaded to YouTube shows a footage of a live web security firm F-Secure’s world map showing the spread of the virus via e-mail in a span of 24 hours as it was reported to be detected.



Notice that some Filipinos were also infected by the virus as can be seen in the map. F-Secure even has a map of where in the Philippines the virus has struck.

I wonder who were the unfortunate ones from the Visayas region that got infected?

Have you heard any word or update about this concerning the Philippines?

  1. Haven’t heard of that one. Does it automatically infect your computer if you open the e-mail or not until you download an attached file?
