    Hey everyone,
    Has anyone else noticed a dramatic increase in the amount of SPAM they are receiving?

    I get a few dozen emails a day with spam or viruses in them, no biggie. But in the past few days, my private email address has started getting bombarded with spam and it's all in German. And, I don't give that address out. Most of the spam I get now on all my accounts is in German.

    Up until a few days ago, I would check my bulk email folder and see maybe 8-12 new spam mail. This morning I checked it (after cleaning it out last night) and I had over 40 new ones. What the...!!


    Anybody else notice anything?

    Hey Capp,

    I've been bombarded this weekend too from my author and support addresses on my web site. Every one has been in German.

    A new variant of the Sober virus appeared over the weekend, spreading right-wing messages in German and English.

    What a pain in the a$$.

    NOD has caught all the varients that have come across my PC, but that would explain all the crap spam I have been getting.

    It still sucks because my private email address (that I rarely use) is now being bombarded too.

    Oh well, thanks for the info guys :)
