  • [email protected] (Mydoom-A) Removal Tool v1.0.3

    Symantec Security Response has developed a removal tool to clean [email protected] infections.

    Also known as: W32/[email protected] [McAfee], WORM_MIMAIL.R [Trend], Win32.Mydoom.A [Computer Associates], W32/Mydoom-A [Sophos], I-Worm.Novarg [Kaspersky]

    [email protected] is a mass-mailing worm that arrives as an attachment with the file extension .bat, .cmd, .exe, .pif, .scr, or .zip.

    When a computer is infected, the worm will set up a backdoor into the system by opening TCP ports 3127 through 3198, which can potentially allow an attacker to connect to the computer and use it as a proxy to gain access to its network resources.

    In addition, the backdoor can download and execute arbitrary files.

    The [email protected] Removal Tool does the following:
    Terminates the [email protected] viral processes.
    Terminates the viral thread running under Explorer.exe.
    Deletes the [email protected] files.
    Deletes the registry values added by the worm.
