Sobig hitting hard

By on
Until a few hours ago I was getting tons of these messages every hour, for some reason it has stopped now and I'm suspecting The Planet guys have something to do with it, which is great of course... Because of this worm I switched over a new program to fight spam, you might remember how I recommended Mailwasher before and although I still like the program I was looking for something more automated, PopFile is a solution you might want to look into. MSNBC has a story on the widespread Sobig worm:

The Sobig.F virus, which continued to spread like wildfire Thursday, has been blamed for computer disruptions at businesses, colleges and other institutions worldwide.[/COLOR]
