MyDoom (crashes server?)

Post by AlertServ » Sun Feb 01, 2004 11:01 pm

I am trying to figure out why a server keeps crashing for a customer. He is running MailEnable Standard and no AV protection on the server. The server itself has no MyDoom infection but there are 1000+ MyDoom infected e-mails sitting on the MailEnable post office.

The server is randomly crashing every so often (1-2) days. Any chance these are the cause? The box looks clean otherwise and there are no event log clues on the blue screens.

Blue screen would usually indicate a driver/hardware issue. Check the stop codes displayed on the blue screen at Microsofts web site. I've seen this sometimes with faulty network cards (some LinkSys cards had this issue - but haven't seen it in a while).
