Here's a riddle for computer users: What is the difference between the W32/Klez.H virus
and mailto:W32.Klez.G, Win32.Klez.I@mm and Klez.K? The answer, it turns out, is nothing.
They are all names for the same bit of malicious software that has been crisscrossing the
Internet for the past few weeks. As if the names were not confusing enough, alerts rated
this new Klez bug, alternately, a low threat, a medium risk, a Category 3 risk and a
Radar Alert Level 2, depending on which antivirus company was issuing the alert.


Loved the article!!
