Yet another windows trojan horse

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.
