InfoWorld: Top News reports E-mail worm, Mydoom, spreading rapidly. A new e-mail worm has appeared on the Internet and is spreading rapidly, according to leading antivirus companies.
Once again folks, this is not a worm, something that spreads by itself. It’s a trojan horse, a file attachment that you have to launch in a permissive (Windows) environment. Don’t click on attachments! Ever! Save to disk, scan with your (updated) virus scanner, confirm an attachment was intended with the sender, and open cautiously, if at all.
