Win32:Mydoom-B
« on: January 28, 2004, 07:10:49 PM »
Win32:Mydoom-B has been discovered in the wild recently. The avast! update is already out. I only wonder if it will be as much successful as its older brother.

All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

We picked this one up this afternoon.  I noticed ClamAV was catching them and McAfee wasn't, so I notified McAfee at around 15:30 GMT.

We picked....

Ehmm.... who's we? Are you an ISP? Are you located in Europe? (this makes a difference since you were saying 'this afternoon' :))

Thanks

I used the "Royal we" - I'm responsible for the email gateway for an English local authority.  Our corporate AV licence is with NAI/McAfee, but all mail to and from the internet is virus scanned and de-spammed on a Linux box, using the open source ClamAV antivirus and McAfee's uvscan for Linux.  I noticed ClamAV was catching some that McAfee was missing at around 15:00 GMT.  I use Avast on my home PC, which is why I'm here...
