    Fresh variant to tedious worm bores users into submission

    Virus writers have released yet another variant in what we must now refer to as the Sobig series.

    Sobig-D, which first appeared today, is a little different from its predecessors the Sobig-B (support@microsoft.com) and Sobig-C (bill@microsoft.com) worms. This time around infectious emails sent out by Sobig.D appear to come from admin@support.com. The worm is spreading modestly and causing only a minimal amount of damage. Most vendors rate it as low risk.

    It's still out there, though. So watch out.
