[Resolved] New Virus Propagating Fast

Recommended Posts

I just posted this information on the main SpamCop Email news page:

A new virus, alternately called Mydoom or one of the Mimail variants, is spreading quickly this afternoon. It was apparently first picked up by the virus labs the middle of this afternoon (EST). At 6:15 p.m. EST our antivirus software company issued a new data file which catches it and our automatic update procedures picked up the new virus definitions at 6:47 p.m. At this point, all SpamCop email is protected from the virus but there were a few hours this afternoon between the introduction of the virus and when we get the new definitions where the virus was delivered to email accounts. As always, don't open attachments you haven't requested, even if they appear to be from people you know.
