Virus ALLERT My Doom.b
 
The new version contains minimal technical innovations.
Mydoom.b also spreads via email and the KaZaA file-sharing network. 
The email contains a different set of text strings in the body.
The carrier file is about 28 KB in size and contains the text string:
(sync-1.01; andy; I'm just doing my job, nothing personal, sorry)

Mydoom.b is scheduled to launch a DoS attack between 
February 1 and February 12 2004 on two web sites:
www.sco.com and www.microsoft.com.

Moreover, the worm modifies the operating system to prevent users 
from reaching many anti-virus vendors' sites, security-related news 
sites and various sections of the Microsoft site, as well as downloading
data from banner networks.
