New MyDoom Worm

I started seeing this yesterday, and we’re usually a couple of days behind on new outbreaks, simply by virtue of being small and not very cutting edge. By the end of yesterday 20 of them had been intercepted by Postini, more than that have been today. That’s a pretty big outbreak for our network. That tells me that either this sucker is running wild out there, or someone we do alot of business with got infected. I’m just glad it wasn’t anyone I do tech support for. 🙂

Update: This afternoon one passed through Postini without being detected. Possibly a new-new variant or did Postini miss it because the attachment was zipped? Must look into this one…
