    Yet another Mydoom variant, caused a Norton LiveUpdate tonite and a new TrendMicro pattern file:

    Symantec: W32.Mydoom.BA@mm
    TrendMicro: WORM_MYDOOM.BA
    McAfee: W32/
    Sophos: W32/MyDoom-BC
    Computer Associates: Win32.Mydoom.AZ

    W32.Mydoom.BA@mm is a mass-mailing worm that uses it own SMTP engine to send email to addresses that it gathers from the Windows Address Book on a compromised computer.

    See the above links for the technical details.
