MyDoom loads without opening attachments
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. Its enough to just open and read the e-mail.
As a result it is extremely important to install antivirus programs and firewalls.
