    This is a virus alert for W32/Sober.C, a new Sober variant
    first detected on 20 December 2003. This worm has gained
    considerable momentum in recent days, particularly in German
    speaking areas.

    Risk:
    Due to its distribution W32/Sober.C@mm is estimated to be
    medium risk.

    Recommended Reactions:
    Users of F-Prot Antivirus should update their virus signature
    files immediately. W32/Sober.C is detected by F-Prot
    Antivirus using virus signature files dated 20 December 2003
    and later.
