Central Command has published its list of the top twelve most prolific online viruses for the past month (March). Unsurprisingly Netsky and its various variants dominate the top spots:

Central Command Releases Its Dirty Dozen - Top 12 - Computer Viruses For March 2004

Central Command, a leading provider of PC anti-virus software and computer security services today released its monthly listing of the top twelve viruses reported for March, 2004. The report, coined the "Dirty Dozen", is based on the number of virus occurrences confirmed through Central Command's Emergency Virus Response Team (R) (EVRT).

The table below represents the most prevalent viruses for March 2004, number one being the most frequent.

Ranking Virus Name Percentage
1. Worm/Netsky.D 35.9%
2. Worm/Netsky.B 16.3%
3. Worm/Netsky.P 11.0%
4. Worm/Netsky.C 4.8%
5. Worm/MyDoom.F 2.2%
6. Worm/MyDoom.A 1.4%
7. Worm/Bagle.J 1.2%
8. Worm/Netsky.K 1.0%
9. Worm/Netsky.Q 0.8%
10. Worm/Sober.D 0.7%
11. Worm/Netsky.A 0.7%
12. Worm/MyDoom.G 0.5%
Others 23.5%

In March, Central Command's Emergency Virus Response Team updated for fifteen variants of the pesky Netsky worm. Netsky occupied seven spots in the Dirty Dozen. "Throughout the month it wasn't really a question of 'if' we'll see another release, it was more of a question of 'when'. I'm sure some batteries of pagers and beepers will probably need to be replaced," said Steven Sundermeier, Vice President of Products and Services at Central Command, Inc.

The Netsky worm family bested the worm Bagle family by accounting for over 70.5% of all confirmed virus occurrences. Central Command also saw fifteen new variants of the Worm/Bagle in March.

Vexira Antivirus has been updated for 1419 different viruses, worms and other malicious applications during the month of March 2004.
