Mydoom.M slowdown search engines

  1. The virus Mydoom.M uses common search engines like Google, Yahoo, Lycos and Altavista to search domains for valid e-mail addresses. As a side effect those search engines where either unavailable or slow yesterday during the outbreak.

    As always we recommend you to run an updated antivirus program at all times on your computer.

    Links with more info: SANS, Netcraft and F-Secure.

    As I mentioned in another thread, I recommend AVAST anti-virus. Totally free, works like a charm!
