@mIn computer viruses, @m is part of the McAfee naming convention for viruses and Trojans. McAfee attaches the @m suffix to the end of a virus name to indicate that this virus can transmit itself via e-mail. The single m indicates that this is a low-volume transmission, usually one e-mail transmitted per e-mail that a user receives.
