Actually, it's stranger than that. It will take random domains and pair
them up with random user names. So if your address book has bob_at_aol.com
and susan_at_earthlink.net, Mydoom will send mail to bob_at_aol.com,
bob_at_earthlink.net, susan_at_aol.com, and susan_at_earthlink.net -- as well as
forging e-mail from all of the above actual and concocted addresses.
