$250,000 Reward for Information of MyDoom Perpetrators

Microsoft Offers $250,000 Reward for Information Leading to Conviction of MyDoom.B Perpetrators

Quote:

Reward Is Third From Microsoft Reward Fund to Support Worldwide Law Enforcement Efforts Against Malicious Code Distributors

REDMOND, Wash. -- Jan. 29, 2004 -- Microsoft Corp. today announced that it will pay a $250,000 (U.S.) reward for information resulting in the arrest and conviction of those responsible for unleashing the MyDoom.B worm. MyDoom.B, detected yesterday, is a variant of the earlier released MyDoom.A worm, also known as the Novarg worm, which has spread quickly infecting computers around the world. The release of this B variant triggered the first alert from the newly formed Department of Homeland Security’s cyber alert system yesterday.

Characteristics of MyDoom.B

Characteristics of the B variant of MyDoom include these:

Infects the computers of unsuspecting consumers and automatically sends infecting e-mail to their e-mail contacts
Blocks access to anti-virus vendor Web sites and www.microsoft.com
Leaves a “backdoor” into infected computers, allowing any hacker to modify the existing worm without the user’s knowledge
Is designed to launch an attack against www.microsoft.com next month
“This worm is a criminal attack,” said Brad Smith, senior vice president and general counsel at Microsoft. “Its intent is to disrupt computer users, but also to keep them from getting to anti-virus locations and other sites that could help them. Microsoft wants to help the authorities catch this criminal.”



so if anyone knows who made the mydoom virus, please let me know
