    Yet another Mydoom variant, caused a Norton LiveUpdate last nite and a new TrendMicro pattern file; also a new McAfee Weekly DATfile release:

    Symantec: W32.Mydoom.AZ@mm
    TrendMicro: WORM_MYDOOM.BD
    McAfee: W32/Mydoom.bc@MM
    Sophos: W32/MyDoom-BC
    Computer Associates: Win32.Mydoom.AY
    VSantivirus: W32/Mydoom.R

    W32.Mydoom.AZ@mm is a mass-mailing worm that uses it own SMTP engine to send an email to addresses that it retrieves from Windows Address book on the infected computer.

    See the above links for the technical details.
