Sober virus watch…



Well, antivirus vendors and IT security folks are waiting now for the expected activation of the sober.y worm searching for a new downloads and a new revision of the pest. kaspersky’s log indicates the expected activation time is 00:00 GMT January 6th, which means here in the EST zone that would be 7PM EST… Of course many of the expected sites have been shut down. It appears that the virus will look periodically for sites to “upgrade” from for some time.


It’s hard to say if there will be any impact from this. f-secure is talking on this as well. They’re not expecting a wide impact (due to the pre-knowledge of download sites.)
