MyDoom searches through a number of different file types, including .txt and
.htm files located on the user's hard disk for email addresses (like other
viruses before it):

Searches for the email addresses in the files that have the following

  a.. .htm
  b.. .sht
  c.. .php
  d.. .asp
  e.. .dbx
  f.. .tbb
  g.. .adb
  h.. .pl
  i.. .wab
  j.. .txt
