MyDoom traced to Russia
MyDoom, the fastest-proliferating computer virus ever, has been traced to Russia.
Using location-sensing software, Kaspersky Labs has traced the first e-mails infected with MyDoom back to addresses with Russian Internet providers.
“It’s scary, but most serious viruses are written in Russia,” said Denis Zenkov, spokesman for Kaspersky, the country’s largest anti-virus software company.
They have a free MyDoom removal tool.
