Was it in a paper speaking about the MyDoom worm currently spreading at
incredible rate in emails (about one third all all emails in Europe are
estimated to contain a copy of this worm, containing this sentence among
others like "Hi"...)
Other names of this virus are: W32/MyDoom.A, Novarg.A, Shimg.A, Mimail.R
A variant called MyDoom.B also exists but with lower risk.
-- For information about this worm, considered "High Risk", you may look at various anti-virus sites, including: - Norman Virus Control http://www.norman.com/virus_info/w32_mydoom_a_mm.shtml - Trend Micro PC-Cillin http://fr.trendmicro-europe.com/enterprise/security_info/virus_encyclopedia.php?s=1&VName=WORM_MYDOOM.A- Symantec Norton Anti-Virus http://firstname.lastname@example.org ...
