FBI / CIA virus



Well… the media has taken the drab name of w32sober.X@mm or w32sober.x or w32sober.y, W32/Sober.AD-mm or any of those other drab names that we’ve been looking at the last week and dubbed the latest big virus, the FBI/CIA virus…. and it’s gotten a lot of press the last few days. I suspect as people head back to work from Thanksgiving, we may see a slight bump in traffic. (Bringing infected laptops into the network maybe? or just home/office users getting back to work…)


Anyway, here are a few of the articles from the last few days. You can look here to see earlier coverage on this site of the bug.
