    For those who haven't yet heard...



    A cyber dragnet aiming to flush out the author of the MyDoom computer worm intensified on January 30, 2004 as the outbreak crippled still more e-mail networks. Investigators and security experts hoped their hunt would get a boost after Microsoft Corp. offered a $250,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the creator of one variant, MyDoom.B




    To summerise. Thick idiots opening attachments have caused this problem to the point where it is now the worst email worm incident in history. These people are probably the same idiots who 'don't believe in antivirus software' as they're only on 'now and again'.

    Can everyone please ensure you only open attachments you know to be safe, or has been confirmed by the sender. Update your virus settings on a REGULAR basis or you'll be one of the lucky few who learn the hard way.

    Has it attacked the software company yet?

    I don't see how the author's of malicious code can operate with such a bounty on top of their head, If I knew someone that created a virii and had a bounty for them, I sure as hell would turn him/her in.

    Is number 3 true about it slowing down the internet ??

    Its so stupid how people download things from sources unknown. Its not that hard.

    If its from someone you dont know, dont download it or even if it is someone you know, make sure they have scanned it with an AV before sending to you and vice versa.

    I guess if the NSP's and NAP get infected, then it could well be possible.

    All this due to public ignorance

    MyDoom's pretty cute. He doesn't evoke the terror of Doom that I thought he would.

    Almost could be on a kid show.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t
