    Virus writers trade insults as e-mail users suffer

    With 20 variations of the Mydoom, Netsky and Bagle viruses circulating around the Internet, it's becoming clear that computer virus writers are engaged in some kind of can-you-top-this game. And it's Internet users who are suffering collateral damage.

    E-mail inboxes around the world are teeming with cryptic notes that have simple messages like "Here is the file," or "I want a reply." When antivirus companies give names to malicious programs, they add letters to virus names as a way of indicating variants, with NetSky.A being the initial version, NetSky.B the second variation, NetSky.C the third, etc. On Wednesday, researchers were up to NetSky.F, Bagle.K, and Mydoom.H.
