Today may have been D-Day for the activation of the Klez.E worm but, despite warnings that the damage could be huge, it has turned into a damp squib.
Klez.E was one of the most widespread malicious pieces of code this year and has been accompanied by warnings that users run the risk of losing important data when it activates its payload on the sixth of every month.
But Graham Cluley, senior antivirus researcher at Sophos, said that, although the company had been monitoring for outbreaks, it has not seen a single report from Asia, the US or Europe during today.
"It's been in the wild for a couple of months and has had ample opportunity to cause damage already," he said. "But it hasn't so far in previous months, and is not likely to today."
