Default more doom & reward

this from ziff davis thought you would like this

MyDoom Worm Mutates, Keeps Spreading
Can you believe it? MyDoom is still spreading—and now it's been reverse-engineered and a new variant has been released into the wild. If you're connected to the Web, it's almost guaranteed that you've received worm-laden e-mails. There's more than just the worldwide infection going on in the Doom-space, though. The worm is scheduled to start attacking SCO's Web site on Sunday, but it appears to have started early. SCO's not happy—they've offered a bounty to track down and indict MyDoom's author—and it ain't chump change either. Keep up on all the MyDoom developments with our ongoing coverage.

Internet Explorer Vulnerable Too
With all the Worm hoopla, you might have missed another major security liability uncovered this week. A huge hole has been discovered in Internet Explorer that could let an attacker hide the extension of a file download, masking a virus or spyware file as a movie, song or PDF, for example. While Microsoft works on the fix, be careful—you're at risk! We've got more details in our report and we'll let you know about a fix as soon as Microsoft releases one.

Cash reward-
