Modwest, Inc. (www.modwest.com), a provider of shared and managed hosting solutions, announced today that despite the rapid proliferation of the MyDoom/Novarg worm, Modwest customer mailboxes continue to be virus-free.
The new worm, rated as high risk by Network Associates, Symantec, and other anti-virus vendors, mass-mails itself to all addresses found on infected computers using its own SMTP engine. To become infected, the recipient must open the accompanying attachment.
Were filtering nearly two thousand per hour, making the MyDoom/Novarg worm one of the hardest-hitting worms that weve seen. The system is handling the increased load, and no viruses or worms are getting through, said Modwest co-founder and VP John Masterson.
Modwest includes virus filtering for free with all web hosting accounts, and it is available as an option to managed server accounts. Modwest hosts thousands of business email accounts for customers in 49 countries, and processes millions of messages a day.
