At the tail end of what could be called this summer's "Worm Week," antivirus and security experts watched carefully as the spreading SoBig.F variant flooded in-boxes around the Internet with millions of virus-laden e-mails. Antivirus researchers said the worm, which was set to activate a barrage of e-mail from infected machines Friday, was not especially alarming but did take advantage of previous worms Blaster and Nachi and generated massive amounts of e-mail during its rampage.
Today is Sept 12. After a two day pause, I'm being hit with a rush of sobig-f infected email that Norton AV with 9/11/2003 definitions is treating very differently than before. It is completely gutting the message and giving me the popup that says it has done so. (All at my request obviously, but I haven't changed anything except allowed auto-update to do the definitions.)
