Sometimes you see that different companies give different names to viruses. Reuters published recently an article about it: http://www.reuters.com/newsArticle.jhtml?type=technologyNews&storyID=4178039 In this thread I don't want to talk about which exact name is used, but more about the structure used by different companies. There are a lot of different kind of viruses. In this thread I restrict myself to worms. The purpose of this thread is to show you the structure used by the companies for "worm-naming". I am well aware that I might have missed a lot of issues involving this topic. So feel free to give your comment ! I will use as example the recent Beagle worm; maybe I should have chosen another example. I could well have missed some AVs/ATs, and/or their names for this worm, or have made another mistake; again: feel free to post them.
