Reuters IM Community Infected with Worm - 04/17/05 10:48 PM

Reuters has confirmed it was forced to temporarily shut down its instant messaging service after it was infected by the Kelvir-U virus that is currently targetting MSN Messenger and Windows Messenger services.

The Kelvir-U had previously posed no threat to Reuters IM service, whose security is tightly controlled. According to security company Imlogic, the incident is the first infection reported by a privately controlled community.
