    ok i posted last night about WORM_SOBER.S and it came in a email saying it was from a hostmaster@yahoo-com and it said stuff like file description and other crap about not being able to send a email i sent out but the thing is i never sent one out . since i posted here last night i hve got about 20 -30 emails from other places (all different ) with the same file attachment with the viruses in it . my hotmail viruse scanner catches it. it also has ones that say here is your password and stuff like here is the thing u requested. i just thought would let u guys know about it and maybe post it or something if any one has any advice that they can share with me on this i would appreciate it :) i scanned with nortons and avg and it doesnt come up with anything but i still fill like i got it ok hope to hear some feed back thankyou

    If you never opened any attachment ..or your AV already cleaned or render them harmless..and then if you deleted all the email like that..you should not have any problem.

    If for any reason you think your PC is infected you can run this tool to check

    BUT before you do anything..best to first read info the the lins below to even see if you have any of the symptoms of the infection. Getting emails alone are not a problem.

    Description:



    As of May 2, 2005 11:50 AM (PDT/GMT -8:00), TrendLabs has declared a Medium risk alert in order to control this new SOBER variant that is currently spreading in Germany and the United States.
