Malware Madness: Stuxnet, Nimda into the Final 4; who's next?

Stuxnet continued its march through the Malware Madness bracket, toppling the surprising Melissa, and Nimda scored an overtime win over Code Red to advance to the semifinals of Malware Madness 2012.

The remaining quarter-finals are now under way. The year’s Cinderella bug, 10th-seeded MyDoom, takes on the 2nd-seeded LoveBug/ILoveYou in one Elite Eight matchup. In the other, No. 3 Zeus tries to fend off No. 6 Conficker.

Which of them deserve to make the Final Four, setting up a showdown a history’s most malicious malware?
