The SANS Institute reports a new variant of MyDoom in the wild actually not recognized
by AV vendors:

New MyDoom On The Loose

Initial analysis (we will update as we know more):

Currently (16:00GMT), signatures are not yet available.
- Signatures are starting to come out, identifying this as MyDoom.O, MyDoom.P or Evaman.C
- It appears that this may only work on Win2K and WinXP machines because the executable
requires psapi.dll.
- Copies itself to the Windows' system directory as winlibs.exe and installs itself
under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Current systems: WHAT OS, BackTrack-raw, PCLinuxOS, Peppermint OS 6, Kali Linux

and a custom Linux From Scratch server hosting a bunch of top secret stuff.
