    Dubbed MyDoom.ac by Symantec, the variant is a standard MyDoom copy-cat. It arrives as an e-mail message with an attached file which when opened, propagates by hijacking addresses from the compromised PC. It can also spread via file-sharing software such as Kazaa, Morpheus, eDonkey, and Limewire.
