Don't open attachments today at all!

Even if you are clever in a security sense. The Mydoom mail worm has been spreading and proliferating since late Monday night, here in the western United States. Even here at the mighty research laboratory of Farlops Industries, we got hit with some spores! Luckily we didn’t activate them and thus spread the contagion. The worm is insidious because it doesn’t rely on the usual social engineering–update your immune-ware and treat all attachments as suspect. Scan first, even if you expected them!
