MyDoom Countermeasures

You would think that the AV vendors would have posted this info when
they deconstructed it.  It also uses the domain name of the email
address that it's sending to as the source system hostname.  I had a
postmaster using Declude AV software email me about the virus coming
from us and I pointed out that the system hostname of the source machine
being used wouldn't resolve to the IP address of the source machine.  I
guess he wasn't doing reverse lookups.

I added this list of names to my sendmail access file, and the number of
MyDoom's/hr dropped significantly.
