Well, Gunsan I believe is unique to YM, but it's true the others can spread
via others as well. But I am not sure what point that makes, since they all
spread by YM as well. And yes, YM has less users than either MSN or AIM, but
still there are users and there are worms that can impact those users.

I can't speak to the IMLogic figures, but these are a few Yahoo IM
worms of which I am aware.

Guap.a
Gunsan
Lile.a
Oscabot.k
StarGames
Velkbot.a
Yimp.a

It's worth noting that none of the worms listed above are unique to the
Yahoo! Instant Messenger client. They take advantage of most IM apps (some
use YIM and AIM only) in addition to a few P2P services.
