Google gets MyDoomed

Even the biggest and most prepared websites can get blown offline by a virus. In this case, a new variant of the MyDoom virus uses Google and other search engines to find email addresses to send itself to.

Update your antivirus program and don’t click on anything in weird emails.

The subject and body of infected messages vary, but normally refer to bogus security warnings ostensibly from a user’s own administrator. This social engineering ruse, although by no means new, helps explain MyDoom-O’s wildfire spread.
