Seems like a new and nasty version of mydoom is loose.

How do i work out if clamav has this covered, i get 'nagged' daily by
the boss "are we covered by X virus" after he reads his watchguard
updates - how do i easily get this info from MS or clamav? I have
subscribed to the virusdb list but there is no easy way to see a list of
known/'fixed' viruses ?

Subject: LiveSecurity | Urgent: Virus Alert -- MyDoom.F
*Contains a destructive payload.* MyDoom.F deletes a seemingly random
selection of Word documents, image, audio and video files, and Excel
spreadsheets. Specifically, it searches for files with the extensions
.mdb, .doc, .xls, .sav, .jpg, .avi, and .bmp on the %System% folder on
drives C to Z, whether the drive is a hard disk, remote drive, or RAM
drive. It deletes some of the files; one source described it as
"randomly deletes," another claimed, "40 percent of the time."
