Sober worm makes a comeback
The Sober.P worm is still spreading fast and made up almost 5 percent of all e-mail traffic on Friday morning, according to a U.K. antivirus company.
Sophos said that the worm accounts for around 77 percent of all virus activity it is seeing. The company said the Sober variant is still spreading, even though large corporations appear to have patched the vulnerabilities that the virus uses to propagate.
"It's lingering around like a nasty smell and spreading in big numbers," said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at Sophos. "It's still at the same level in that it's 4.65 percent of all e-mail out there. We can't be sure how many people it's infecting, but we think most big business will be protected."
