It looks like enough people got the warning about Nyxem. After estimates of over 300,000 infected computers, the damage appears to be limited to about 5,000...mostly believed to be home computers. There's nothing like the threat of losing your data to prompt people to update their antivirus defenses. (Heck, I updated mine, and my Linux machine isn't even vulnerable to Nyxem.) —brad
