MyDoom-B VIRUS creates havoc

Microsoft is the latest corporate target expecting attack from the hacker activists behind the MyDoom email worm.

The destructive code is still flooding internet services in 170 countries. It is rated the ninth-worst computer virus yet released.

MyDoom-B, a new version of the original worm released early on Tuesday, Australian time, was identified yesterday. It was found to be carrying an attack against Microsoft's website, set to be launched between February 1 and 12.

Hacker activists in the Linux software community have been blamed for MyDoom-A, which carries code that could launch an attack on a US software company, SCO, selling a variant of the Unix operating system.

The anti-SCO hackers' worm appears to have been copied by anti-Microsoft activists expressing their dislike of the software monopoly.

SCO, is suing Linus Torvalds, inventor of the Linux operating system, claiming its Unix code has been illegally used in Linux. Actions are also pending against IBM and Novell.
