London, UK - 27 February 2004, 8:30 GMT - The number of MyDoom infections
has again begun rising worldwide as the malware's new variants multiply. In
exactly one month since its initial discovery, the MyDoom family is dwarfing
the damage caused by any other malware epidemic including SoBig. Overnight
the web site of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has come
under crippling attack and has been intermittently inaccessible from a number
of cities around the world including London, New York and Tokyo.
