Mydoom.B - No Visible Effects Posted by Mikko @ 08:12 GMT

It's now the 3rd of February – the activation date of the Mydoom.B variant. As forecasted, the attack has had no visible effects against www.microsoft.com.

If the B variant would have become as widespread as A, this attack would have been very serious even against such a massive (and Akamai-hosted) site as www.microsoft.com. But it didn't.
