Why We Are Issuing This Alert

W32/Mydoom@MM spreads through e-mail. This worm can disguise the sender's
address, a tactic known as spoofing, and may generate e-mails that appear to
have been sent by Microsoft. Many of the addresses Mydoom uses are valid
addresses that are being spoofed for malicious purposes.

Mydoom Virus Alert: What to Do

Treat all e-mail attachments with caution, particularly .zip files in the
case of this virus, even if they appear to be from a trusted source. Learn
what to do about virus infections.
