Yaha usurps Klez

Yaha-E displaced Klez as the most common viral menace on the Internet over the last month, according to Messagelabs. The managed services firm has blocked Yaha-E 367,158 times so far in July, relegating Klez-H (332,343 interceptions) to second place in its monthly viral charts. Sobig-E (blocked 188,235 times) and BugBear-B (108,206) and Sobig-A (63,076) make up the remaining stop five places in MessageLabs chart, released last night.
