Mydoom, Bagle and Netsky families Virus

The new virus' doing the rounds on the internet are really starting to annoy me! They use a common spoofing process not from the infected customers. W32.Beagle.A@mm, the one fired at me the most, is a mass-mailing worm that accesses remote Web sites and sends email to any addresses it finds using its own SMTP engine. In other words it immitates website extensions, so I am sure many of you are getting email with the extension of your own server. Today I got one from support@brandonhamber.com. Virus' that operate in a similar way are Mydoom, Bagle and Netsky families. To read more about it click here.
