Sober.AH to become Nazi tool?

By Derek Sooman on
Security experts fear that the recent Sober.AH epidemic could form part of a neo-Nazi masterplan. The aim may be to fill up the inboxes of the world's internet users with hateful Nazi propaganda in the form of spam.

According to analysis of the worm's code conducted by PandaLabs, this malware is designed to connect to numerous servers between the 5th and 6th of January 2006: the anniversary of the Nazi Party's formation. This could enable it, among other actions, to download a malicious file which could turn computers infected by Sober.AH into zombies, spreading 'political' spam.
Luis Corrons, director of PandaLabs, claims that there could be a huge number of computers infected with Sober.AH out there.
