Bugbear is the name of a relativly new Finnish game development company. Their only released game so far is Rally Trophy, which is a very nice first game indeed, being one of my favorite rally games. They are specialized in developed racing games wuth realistic handling / physics.

Bugbear is also the name of a recent windows virus, more specifically an e-mail worm, which has brought some less than decirable publicity to the above mentioned company. The virus massmails itself to spread, and also tries to spread through open fileshares on windows-networks. As if that was not enough it also tries to get rid of various firewall and antivirus software it finds on the infected computer. It also forges the from-adress on the mails it sends.
