The WildList

                   PC Viruses in the Wild - August, 1999
 ============================================================================

   This is a cooperative listing of viruses reported as being in the wild
   by 55 virus information professionals. The basis for these reports are
   virus incidents where a sample was received, and positively identified
   by the participant.  Rumors and unverified reports have been excluded.

   Some hostile programs included in this list may fall outside the
   traditional definition of a computer virus. However, such programs
   are spreading throughout diverse user populations, are a threat to
   users and are therefore included in this list.

   This report is cumulative. That is, this is not just a report of
   which viruses were seen last month. Monthly data is received from
   most participants, but the new data is added to the old. Participants
   are expected to let us know when to remove their name from a virus.

   The list should not be considered a list of "the most common viruses",
   however, since no specific provision is made for a commonness factor.

   This data indicates only "which" viruses are in the wild, but viruses
   reported by many (or most) participants are obviously widespread.

   The WildList is currently being used as the basis for in-the-wild
   virus testing and certification of anti-virus products by the ICSA,
   Virus Bulletin and Secure Computing. Additionally, a virus collection
   based upon the WildList is being used in an effort to standardize the
   naming of common viruses.

                              The WildList
 ============================================================================
  This main list includes viruses reported by multiple participants, which
  appear to be non-regional in nature. Technically, this first list is "the"
  WildList according to original specification, which required viruses to
  be verified in the wild by a minimum of two participants. A supplemental
  list follows that contains viruses reported by single participants.

 + Viruses marked with a plus sign (+) are new to the main list this month.

                            Supplemental List
 ============================================================================
  As was noted at the start of the main list, this list is not technically
  part of "The WildList", as originally defined. By design, the WildList
  is a list of viruses verified as being in the wild by a minimum of two
  WildList participants. The viruses listed below do not currently meet
  that criteria.

  This additional list includes viruses reported by a single participant
  and are often either moving onto the main list, or dropping off of it.

  Please note especially that this list also tends to be more of a
  regional reporting mechanism. For example, a virus is often reported
  as very common by one regional participant, but is found nowhere else
  in the world.

  Viruses marked with a minus sign (-) dropped from the main list this
  month. Viruses marked with a plus sign (+) are new to the supplemental
  list this month.

                      WildList Sorted by Frequency
 ============================================================================
   This is not a prevalence table. It does not show how common each virus
   is. Rather it is the WildList sorted by the number of participants that
   report each virus.

   This section gives the names, types, and aliases of the most frequently
   reported viruses. These viruses have been reported by at least one third
   of WildList participants. They are sorted with the most frequently
   reported first. A more complete alias list is also provided.

  Release notes for the August WildList:

  WLO welcomes Bruce Hughes of ICSA -- International Computer Security
  Association.  Bruce steps in for Jonathan Wheat.
  
  WLO welcomes EICAR and -- once again -- Eddy Willems.  Eddy recently
  accepted a dual role in WLO by reporting for both Data Alert International
  and now EICAR -- European Institue for Computer Anti-Virus Research.

  WLO welcomes Gerald Batten of Sensible Security Solutions (SSS). Gerald
  steps in for Robert Vibert.  Robert continues on as a reporter to WLO,
  however, providing virus incident reports independent of SSS.

  WLO welcomes Sha-Li Hsieh of Computer Associates.  Sha-Li will report
  virus incidents occuring in the US and abroad as discovered by
  Inoculate IT.

  WLO welcomes Tzvetan 'Ceco' Chaliavski of Command Software.  Ceco will
  report virus incidents occuring in the US and abroad as discovered by
  F-Prot Pro.
  

  The following viruses -- originally on the supplemental list -- fell
  completely from the August '99 WildList:

        Creed.5209                      WM/Johnny.V
        Little_Red.1465.A               WM/KMT.A

        W97M/Class.S                    XM/Laroux.HJ
        WM/CAP.GG


  * REGARDING W95/CIH.1003 (mistakenly referred to as the Chernobyl virus)
  "Chernobyl" is a name popularized by the press.  No product uses this
  name.  The name Chernobyl is viewed as "incorrect" by AV vendors.
