The latest version of MyDoom, which started arriving in peoples mail boxes in force today, uses search engines to find more recipients for its message. Once the virus is started, it searched the users files for domain names. Once it spotted a domain name (e.g. 'example.com'), it will search various search engines for valid e-mail addresses within these domains. These search engines include Lycos, Google, Altavista, Yahoo and possibly others. Some of the search engines, in particular Google and Lycos, had problems handling the large number of queries. As a result, the search engines did not return any result, or returned error messages. These MyDoom e-mails arrive in a number of different forms. Some claim to be a bounce caused by a message the user sent earlier, others claim to be a message from the users ISP claiming that the user sent spam and should run the attached file. The virus may be zipped or a plain executable...

"...Symantec reports that the 'Zindos.A' backdoor dropped by MyDoom-O is used by a worm that will attempt to DDOS microsoft.com. Infected systems will start the DDOS right after the worm is installed and will scan for other vulnerable systems. Infected systems can easily be identified by looking for port 1034 TCP scans..."
