Security experts are warning internet users to update their antivirus systems to protect against yet another version of the Mydoom worm.

W32/Mydoom.s@MM, also known as Mydoom.s, has emerged as a new variant of the mass-mailing worm, and comes in the form of the .exe attachment, 'photos_arc.exe'.

McAfee's Avert antivirus team warned that it has received "well over 100 reports" of the virus within a three-hour span, mostly from Japan and Europe.
