Virus Information

Information about the Novarg Virus (a.k.a. mydoom)

Novarg, also known as mydoom, is a new email worm that has been spreading on the Internet and has gained attention. Novarg arrives as an email with one of these subject lines:

  • test
  • hi
  • hello
  • Mail Delivery System
  • Mail Transaction Failed
  • Error
  • Status

If you see emails with one of these suspect subject lines and don't know the source, delete them without opening them. The fact that you received the email does *not* mean you're infected.

If your antivirus software alerts you that the file was quarantined, no further action is necessary.
