W32/Mydoom@MM Virus(es)

Just wanted to warn everyone that visit my blog to update your Virus Definitions. I received an email today from someone at AOL with the subject "HELLO". I run all my email through McAfee's SecurityCenter, which downloads my email, filters it for spam (aka SpamKiller) and also scans for viruses.

It picked up the virus better known as Information W32/Mydoom@MM.

Remember, don't open attachments if you don't know who they're from. This virus has it's own built in email program that can spoof the return address as someone in your address book, so be very careful.
