New MyDoom Virus

If you have not yet patched XP by deploying the XP Service Pack 2 at your law firm, it certainly would be wise to consider doing so ASAP. There is a new version of the MyDoom worm which is being called one of the fastest ever responses to an unpatched Microsoft IE problem.

If you are not running XP yet, it would be wise to consider notifying your client base about this issue (and not to click on links from within emails) or to potentially consider other browsers which are less problematic from a security perspective.

An article outlining these issues are available on Information Week. Access it by clicking here.
