Worms of the electronic sort...

The MyDoom worm is mildly frightening, mainly because it has taken an interest in my delightful acad email account. I got several of the "undeliverable" messages, and the appropriate virus attachment. I didn't open it, yet I'm still freakishly running a virus scan at least twice a day (the at start-up one, and then my paranoid "did it work?" scan later in the day, when the web appears to be getting slower).

I do feel like I'm in on the ground floor though, since my virus messages came on Monday. ;)

My MacAfee has been going crazy all day about this new worm...I really hate virus alerts--they just infuse paranoia.

I don't know if I would call it paranoia, as I have received 5 additional wormy emails. Aarg.
