EMERGENCY ALERT: Many reports of W32/MyDoom-A worm
Don't let the virus writers win: update your anti-virus now

An email alert from Sophos arrived this morning. Unusually, it contains the words EMERGENCY ALERT. Message reads: "Sophos has received many reports of sightings of the new email-aware W32/MyDoom-A worm, and is warning system administrators around the world to ensure their systems are protected."

Please stop reading this blog now and take time out to protect your computer. Don't let the virus writers spoil our blogosphere. I use Symantec and update every few days, and receive free email alerts from Sophos. Sophos' emails help to keep me constantly aware of the latest virus threats, and act as a reminder to update my anti-virus protection every few days. If you have not already done so, you can sign-up with Sophos for free automatic email notification of every new virus found in the wild.

In my sidebar, you will see Sophos info feeds on the latest virus and hoaxes. Click on each alert for further details. The information feeds are free, require no maintenance and are automatically kept up-to-date by Sophos. As well as English, the feeds are also available in French, German, Spanish and Japanese.

Update your anti-virus now so that you can detect and prevent the MyDoom-A worm. Click on the Sophos info feed in my sidebar for a detailed analysis of W32/MyDoom-A.
