Both this Monday’s outbreak of MyDoom.L and last weeks Bagle.AH virus attack were instantly detected and stopped by Norman’s SandBox technology. Norman customers enjoyed immediate and effective protection when the worms attacked.
The most recent virus, MyDoom.L, appeared Monday and caused severe delays for Internet search engines, such as Google, Lycos and Yahoo. The virus worm spreads via e-mail attachments, pretending to come from the PC user’s internet provider.

When run, the worm can open a back door on the infected computer, making the computer potentially vulnerable to hackers. The virus uses e-mail addresses found on the computer to mail itself to other users, making the mail appear to originate from the attacked computer domain.
Norman’s SandBox technology is the world’s leading technology in pro-active virus protection. Norman SandBox monitors among other ways all files trying to enter the computer through e-mail or on-line connection. Should a file raise the system’s suspicion, it will be analysed, and if found malicious isolated and denied access to the computer.

Arvid Gomez, Norman’s Product Marketing Director said: “The two major virus outbreaks we have seen over the last week demonstrate Norman’s technological edge. Both MyDoom.L and Bagle.AH were stopped by our pro-active Norman SandBox technology. Furthermore updated virus definitions were available for download by our customers within minutes of the outbreak.”
