MyDoom Net Worm Scores Hit, Knocks Out SCO Site

LONDON (Reuters) - The MyDoom Internet worm claimed its first scalp Sunday, paralyzing the Web site of American software firm SCO Group (SCOX.O: Quote, Profile, Research) with a massive data blitz.

In a statement issued Sunday morning, the Utah-based company confirmed MyDoom knocked its site, http://www.sco.com, out of commission.

"Internet traffic began building momentum Saturday evening and by midnight Eastern Time the SCO Web site was flooded with requests beyond its capacity," the statement read.
