Internet worms strike again


Yet another worm, this one called Mydoom, has spread around the world, 99% of my email today contained it. Thankfully I was running upto date virus definitions and I remain unaffected.

This worm spoofs email addresses, please read up on how the worm propogates itselfs via email, delete any suspicous emails immediately and run an upto date virus checker.

Be assured that any emails you receive that appear to be from an address and contain this or any other worm did not originate from that address. This worm, as others do, scans through infected machines contact lists and sends itself on using addresses found within, which means someone who has my email address on their system is now infected :-/
