Latest Virus…MyDoom

January 29th, 2004 by Adam

A new virus is circulating the Internet; the 32/Mydoom@MM. This new virus is a mass-mailing type of virus that arrives as an e-mail attachment. If the attachment is launched, it may allow access to your computer from a remote individual.

To minimize exposure to this and other email viruses we recommend using extreme caution or never opening email attachments.

As a reminder, to limit exposure and confusion, Adelphia will never send it’s customers emails with attachments.

If your computer becomes infected, the worm creates a “backdoor” for attackers to remotely access your computer, files and network resources. In addition,
the “backdoor” has the ability to download and execute arbitrary files onto your computer.
