Damage from the new Bagle variants should be minor as anti-virus vendors react quickly to the attacks, said Ken Dunham, director of malicious code at iDefense, another cybersecurity vendor. The first two variants were tentatively dubbed Bagle.CA and Bagle.CB, which would make them the 79th and 80th Bagle variants.
"We're a long way down the line of Bagle worms," Dunham said. "It's very similar to former Bagle attacks."
