Malware Threat - 01 Jan 2005

Level: Low
Synopsis: It's been a quiet month on both the security patch and malware fronts. Downloader.GK is the most widespread virus at this time, followed by the latest mutations of Netsky. But don't let down your guard. Trojans are circulating that try to take advantage of an Outlook Express vulnerability (MS04-013 ) that allows remote execution of code. Keep your systems patched and your virus signatures up to date.
