This morning, I found a few hundered emails directed to my jasonpearce.com server. It appears there’s a new virus in town:
“A malicious program attached to seemingly innocuous e-mails was spreading quickly over the Internet on Monday, clogging network traffic and potentially leaving hackers an open door to infected personal computers.
The worm, called ‘Mydoom’ or ‘Novarg’ by antivirus companies, disguises itself as an e-mail error message. A small file is attached that, when launched on computers running Microsoft’s Windows operating systems, can send out 100 infected e-mail messages in 30 seconds to e-mail addresses stored in the computer’s address book and other documents.”
