    Inside the recent MyDoom is Zindos.A which is released from Zincite.A
    embedded in MyDoom. It was just discovered today.

    It will launch a DDoS on microsoft.com and, or course, it puts your
    computer completely under the control of people you would not want to meet
    on the street. You will start sending spam, pirated software and porn from
    home and perhaps get shut down by your ISP if you get caught.

    It effects and corrupts all MS operating systems from XP through
    Win95 including the servers.

    Of course, if you have the latest patches and AV updates, there is no
    problem at all. And we never open attachments without first checking them
    out, do we?
