New Sober worm variant detected

Posted on Wednesday, April 20 2005 @ 00:46:33 CEST by

Anti-virus experts warn for a new variant of the Sober worm that is spreading quickly over the internet. The new Sober.M worm sends e-mails with the subject line "I've got your e-mail on my account."

The whole mail is written in either bad English or German - possibly to deceive people the e-mail is not a virus. It contains a .zip file called your_text.zip, if a user opens the file the worm will send itself to all contact persons of the victim.

The worm also gathers e-mail addresses of victims and sends them back to its anonymous author. This is known as harvesting and these lists are mostly sold to spammers.
