Virus Hits Search Engines Again

Thread Title:
MyDoom uses Search Engines to Spam
Thread Description:

Spotted by Sophos in Australia and reported by ZDNet.

Another variant of the MyDoom worm, which spreads by sending copies of itself using its own SMTP engine and harvesting potential e-mail targets from search engines such as Google and Yahoo, was spreading quickly on Thursday.

It's a pity but whilst search is available and contains so much information people will code to mine that data. That includes email spammers and virii writers as much as anyone else!
