Submission + - After 7 years, MyDoom worm is still spreading (sophos.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Researchers at Sophos have revealed that the MyDoom worm, which spread via email and launched denial-of-service attacks against websites belonging to SCO and Microsoft, is still spreading on the internet after more than 7 years in existence.

The firm suggests tongue-in-cheek, that it would be nice if computer users updated their anti-virus software /at least/ once every 5 years to combat the malware threat.
