    A lot of vendors use the same or similar names for detected malware. When a new piece of malware is discovered, who names it?

    Microsoft has partnered with numerous anti-virus vendors.
    They certainly have some naming standard in order to streamline naming these threats as they arise.

    Post back if you require additional information.
