MyDoom loads without opening attachments

The MyDoom virus has mutated, and it now hits computers without even having the attachment opened.

E-mail virus Mydoom.B is spreading when users open their e-mail, even if the attachment is left unopened, according to the Finnish virus expert Mikko Hyppönen, reports the Norwegian news bureau (NTB).

This makes the Mydoom. B virus much more malicious than other virus.

“Some versions of the Mydoom.B virus will be activated automatically from the e-mail,” Hyppönen said. “It’s enough to just open and read the e-mail.”

As a result it is extremely important to install antivirus programs and firewalls.
