    Summary


    NetSky.X worm was discovered on April 20th, 2004.

    This variant is extremely close to the latest NetSky variants. It shares up to approximately 86% of the code and features in common with NetSky.U.

    Netsky.X sends messages in several different languages: English, Swedish, Finnish, Polish, Norwegian, Portuguese, Italian, French, German and possibly the language of some small island called Turks and Caicos, located in the Atlantic ocean. In many cases the messages are composed incorrectly suggesting that the worm's author did not ask native speakers for translation or used an on-line translation service like Babel Fish.
