DoD arms against MyDoom

The Defense Department is spending $8 million on a prototype system to protect military networks from malicious software, such as the recent MyDoom worm.

The Defense Department awarded a cost-plus fixed-fee contract for a system that will intercept and quarantine worms and viruses to Telcordia Technologies Inc., a subsidiary of San Diego-based Science Applications International Corp.

Piscataway, N.J.-based Telcordia Technologies will develop, test and validate the distributed network system. Work is scheduled to be completed by January 2007.
