SirCam haunts dim-witted users

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "SirCam is still the most infectious computer virus on the Internet. Four months after it was first
released it continues to haunt users.

The privacy-threatening, bandwidth-stealing worm headed the monthly chart of virus reports compiled
by antivirus vendor Sophos and accounted for 21.7 per cent of calls to its support centre in October.
It was followed by Nimda-A (17.8 per cent), September's chart topper, and the Magistr-B (16.1 per
cent)."
