  1. According to senior analyst Gregg Mastoras of U.K.-based security firm Sophos, Sober-K is rapidly spreading across the Internet under a number of different subject lines, including one about Paris Hilton pornography and another from the FBI.

    "It's a classic worm, disguising itself and using some sort of teaser to get you to open it," Mastoras said. "I wouldn't be surprised if Sober-K ended up at the top of our security lists before it's all said and done."
