It was taken down by the DDOS 
<>. The attack 
on MS is supposed to happen Tuesday. It's believed that MyDoom.B doesn't 
have the saturation of the original, so it's not known if it will be as 
effective against MS's greater resources.

I should say about my comment earlier that I do not in any way condone 
the attack on SCO or MS. It is nothing less than a terrorist attack: a 
politically motivated attack by a person or organization to force or 
coerce change. It makes the open source community look bad. The above 
was just an (improper?) expression of my intitial reaction. I will be 
glad to see the end of both viruses.
