** VIRUS ADVISORY - W32/Mydoom.f@MM **
------------------------------------------------------------

A variant of the original Mydoom virus, W32/Mydoom.f@MM
is a Medium Risk mass-mailing worm that can open up hacker
backdoors on infected systems and launch denial-of-service
attacks that target www.microsoft.com and www.riaa.com
domains.

Note: Unlike previous versions of Mydoom, Mydoom.f can
also delete image, movie, Excel and Word files on an
infected machine.

Like other mass-mailing viruses, W32/Mydoom.f@MM steals
email addresses from an infected machine, then mails itself
to other computers, often spoofing the "from field." The
worm arrives with random subject lines, such as "Please
read," "Something for you" or "Please reply". The body of
the e-mail contains an executable file often disguised as
a text file.

Caution: An infected email can come from addresses you
recognize and may contain the following information:

------------------------------------------------------------
