New Virus in town...
The W32.Mydoom.M@mm mass-mailing worm:
Uses its own SMTP engine to send itself to all the email addresses that it finds from an infected system.
The email has an attachment with a .bat, .cmd, .com, .exe, .pif, .scr, or .zip extension.
The attachment may have a second extension, which will either be .doc, .txt, .htm, or .html.
The attachment name may contain a randomly selected domain, which was found on the sender's system.

For example, the attachment name could contain fakedomain.com if the address x@fakedomain.com was harvested.

The From field of the email is spoofed.
Downloads and executes a backdoor, which is detected as Backdoor.Zincite.A, on port 1034/tcp.
Is packed by UPX.

system it affects: Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP
