  • Undead virus infects the dim-witted


    A worm which poses as a caricature of former US president Bill Clinton stole the headlines last month, but old favourites like SirCam and Klez-E were far more of a problem for most Internet users.

    That's according to monthly statistics from managed services firm MessageLabs, which stopped 161,904 viruses in March, slightly up on the 135,523 it blocked in February, but well down on figures from the two previous months. MessageLabs reports that virus infection rates are running at around one per 600 emails, compared to one in 30 infected emails at the heights of the Goner and Love Bug epidemics.
