10/6/2002 10:51:00 AM

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- The new computer ‘Bugbear’ worm is thought to have come from Malaysia, according to a British-based technology news website. Malaysian cyber detectives are investigating the issue, and say there is no justification that the virus originated from Malaysia.

This worm opens up a backdoor and logs keystrokes when activated. It has the ability to steal password and credit cards details.
