Win32/Mydoom is a family of mass-mailing worms that spread through e-mail. Some variants also spread through peer-to-peer networks. The worm acts as a backdoor Trojan, which allows an attacker to access the infected system. This backdoor may be used to distribute other malicious software. Some variants of Win32/Mydoom launch denial of service (DoS) attacks against specific Web sites.
