Sonic.net filters new virus.

Mon Jul 26 13:29:37 PDT 2004 — Sonic.net filters new virus. A new variant of the MyDoom virus started hitting Internet users recently. It harvests email addresses from the victim machine and sends messages that purport to be from the recipient’s Internet Service Provider. Sonic.net is filtering this virus now, so our customers won’t spread the virus. But you may have seen some strange message before the filtering took effect. It is also reported that this virus is causing problems for search engines like Google because it also searches for email addresses matching the domain of an address found on the victim machine.
