This trojan began infecting thousands of mostly private computers in Europe and the United States on January 19th, 2007, using an email message with a subject about a recent weather disaster ("230 dead as storm batters Europe"). During the next two days, there were six subsequent waves of attack, and by January 22nd, 2007 the backdoor trojan caused 8% of all malware infections globally.
