More on the slight new variant of Mydoom.A Posted by Mikko @ 04:15 GMT

It turned out there was a little bit more to the new variant (Mydoom.D) found on Tuesday evening than just repacking it with Petite; one of the email messages it sends has been patched to say:

 "ROFL HELLO SAM HOWS UPZ. Partial message is available."

So obviously it's the work of some kid just playing with the virus and sending greetings to his friend.
