This virus, which goes by the names Mydoom, Novarg, and Mimail.R has several attack points and can affect versions of Microsoft Windows from Windows 98 through Windows XP and 2003. It is setting a new speed record for infection and it is currently estimated that one out of every twelve email messages on the internet is being generated by this new and malicious worm.
