|Eurgh, a horrifically virulent new virus that has either affected at least 40 people whose address books contain my email address, or that sends itself out several times per infectee and has infected fewer. Regardless, I have received 40 copies of this virus in my email in the last twelve hours, and the virus was first discovered today according to McAfee. If my contact with it is any indication, the internet will be stumbling around drunkenly for a few days this week, then, as all its bandwidth gets devoured by people who run executable attachments from strangers.|
But at least it's called "MyDoom". That's pretty cool. Even if it is also known as "Shimg", "MIMAIL" and "Novarg", which are rubbish names. Unfortunately, it also means I've had to add zip files to the list of types as attachments from non-white-listed sources that result in messages being silently deleted at the server.
