Storm is a backdoor Trojan horse that affects Microsoft operating systems, first observed on January 17th, 2007. Storm began infecting thousands of mostly private computers in Europe and the United States two days later via an email message with the "230 dead as storm batters Europe" (hence the name "Storm"). Over the next two days, there were six subsequent waves of attack, and by January 22nd, 2007, Storm had caused 8% of all malware infections globally.

Storm belongs to the Peacomm family of Trojans.
