Seemingly, iDefence (a computer security firm) has discovered that the Sober worm has been created as a tool to help Nazis find new recruits! Yes, in a move that is perhaps meant to commemorate the Party’s 87th anniversary, Nazis plan to pour out spam after spam containing their hateful dogma.

After looking under the bonnet of the code iDefence has worked out that on January 5 2006, the date of the founding of the Nazi Party, infected machines will start spewing out racist, neo-nazi propaganda.

There are more than 30 variants of the sober Virus, which have been clearly penned by a German speaker or group of German speakers, iDefence says.
