DENVER — The MyDoom virus, unleashed midday on Monday (Jan. 26), was spreading at a record pace 24 hours later. Antivirus security companies were reporting the virus on track to infect more than 10 million users worldwide.

By Tuesday morning, major corporations were shutting down e-mail servers to cope with a torrent of several hundred infected attachments in individual users' in-boxes.


According to computer security companies, the ultimate target of the virus is The SCO Group, the Utah-based company that has threatened Linux users with lawsuits. The virus takes remote control of computers, and is programmed to launch a denial-of-service attack on SCO servers starting on Feb. 1.

SCO already has been the target of several small attacks, sparking concern that the MyDoom virus was developed by a Linux community activist. With the help of IBM and Intel, we were already prepared to sink SCO claims in court,” said one source from the embedded Linux community. This kind of vigilante action against [SCO chief executive] Darl McBride helps no one.”

Infected e-mails arrive with headers such as Test” or Error in Sending ” Transaction Failure,” and contain an executable file with a message about an inability to translate Unicode. When users execute the file, a back door is created in the Windows operating systems (including 95, 98, XP, ME, NT, and 2000) which allows other programs to be installed, and for the client computer to serve as a denial-of service platform for an attack on the SCO Web server.


Central Command, a computer security services company based in Medina, Ohio, estimated Tuesday that the Internet worm was spreading globally and accounting for one out of every nine e-mail messages being infected.

PARIS — L'Autorité de régulation des télécommunications (ART) a publié mardi 27 janvier 2004 les chiffres de son Observatoire des Mobiles pour le dernier trimestre de l'année 2003. Ils révèlent un net rebond de la croissance du parc des téléphones mobiles sur l'ensemble du territoire français.


Après recensement, la France compte au 31 décembre 2003 un total de 41,7 millions de clients au téléphone mobile. Le taux de pénétration est alors de 69,1%.

Sur l'ensemble de l'année 2003, la croissance annuelle des clients mobiles a été supérieure à trois millions, soit une progression de 8%. La performance est telle que l'ART parle de « net rebond de la croissance ». En effet, la croissance annuelle n'avait été que de 4,3% en 2002.

New York — Analog Devices Inc.'s rollout today of its latest Blackfin processors reinforces a growing industry consensus that consumer media devices could mark the next great opportunity for digital signal processors.

Math-friendly and readily reprogrammable, DSPs are seen by many as a necessary response to the ever-escalating demands for flexibility and high performance in today's compute-intensive audio and video consumer applications.

Newly architected chips like Blackfin, some authorities suggest, provide a compact way to save space and power over traditional solutions that team a DSP with a microcontroller in a configuration that one observer dismisses as just the DSP chip next to some other chip.”

Traditionally, consumer systems have used a combination of DSPs for compute-intensive video and graphics processing, and a RISC-based processor for user-interface and control functions. Texas Instruments Inc., for example, couples a C55x or C64x DSP with an ARM. In the case of Blackfin, ADI is counting on the processor's blend of high-end, code-efficient DSP processing with impressive RISC performance to obviate a dual-processor DSP/ARM approach in all but the most demanding applications.
