    does anyone know what WORM_SOBER.S virus is and how serious it is . i got a email from hostmaster@yahoo.com saying my email was blocked with a attachment saying, mail_info.zip and the email was saying ..........................This is an automatically generated E-Mail Delivery Status Notification.Mail-Header, Mail-Body and Error Description are attached
    when i first got it i opened the attachment and the hotmail virus scanner caught the virus but i dont know if i got the virus or not . the person it was sent to in the address at the top of the email wasnt even my email address. just thought i would warn ppl if anyone else gets this in there email and hopefuly i will get some info back, thankyou
