    Sobig.F Virus

    just have to share this to other forum members...

    DO NOT OPEN EMAIL ATTACHMENTS

    even if u know the person or source. The Sobig mass emailing worm/virus is really getting big..

    A new version of the Sobig worm virus is going around. The worm counterfeits the EMail adress of the sender. I can see in my inbox that itīs using my adress as well.

    EMails with the following subject should be deleted immediately. Donīt open the attachement. Hints to the sender that you got an virus from him donīt help, since the sender adress is bogus.

    The subjects Sobig.f is using:

    How about this:

    do a mental check - of you get Re: That movie from Joe - think who the hell is Joe and do you remember seeing a movie with him?

    as to the email attachments well - don't open unless you know someone is sending you something

    Q: Does email scanning pick up hte virus?

    heh, I got that email that said Re: That Movie. But I couldn't open the attachment. And to think that upset me at the time. haha
    If you can stay calm, while all around you is chaos...then you probably haven't completely understood the seriousness of the situation.

    I was getting 200-300 of these per day for the last week or so, until we had it blocked at server level.
    Now I don't get them anymore.
