Virus Alert - MyDoom returns.

If you're not running an antiviral program, or if you haven't updated your definitions recently, now is the time to do it. Please. :wink: I was bombarded by earlier variations of MyDoom, and it more or less had to be from someone either from Bucknuts or here on BP.

I personally use Norton Antivirus 2004, but McAfee makes a popular solution that comes bundled with some machines. There are also a lot of other good ones.
eh, ive noticed a dramatic increase in virus's in the last couple weeks while trying to umm procure software from legitimate filesharing corperations that operate well within the law.. wink wink.. in fact ive found two on different dvd burning programs within the last week.. my computer is armed like green beret though so i havent had any problems, but just a warning to any other file sharers out there..

Good to see someone post about the W32.Beagle.J@mm virus. A few things though. This virus keeps coming back every so often, with a few different "variations" and a noticable letter change in its name...like m instead of J.
So be aware of this. I recently helped my sister get it off her computer. She got it in an email from a good friend of hers. the email had an attached .rar file that was password protected. The email only said "Password is 0131". So be aware of odd emails like this.
