    Default VIRUS ADVISORY: W32/Sober@MM!M681

    W32Sober@MM!M681
    Medium Risk
    DAT Required: 4629

    What is it?

    A variant of W32/Sober.gen@MM, W32/Sober@MM!M681 is another mass-mailing worm hiding inside a spam email attachment. When run, the virus displays a fake error message, infects the host computer then sends itself to stolen email addresses. Note: VirusScan users with the latest DAT file are protected from this threat.

    What should I look for?


    FROM: Varies
    SUBJECT: Examples: Registration Confirmation; Paris Hilton & Nicole Richie; hi, ive a new mail address
    BODY: Example: hey its me, my old address dont work at time. i dont know why?! in the last days ive got some mails. i' think thaz your mails but im not sure!

    How do I know if I've been infected?


    Fake error message ("Error in packed Header") displayed. Outgoing messages as noted above. Note: Receiving an email alert stating that the virus came from your email address is not necessarily an indication you are infected. Mass-mailing viruses often forge (or "spoof") the from address.

    What can I do?

    Besides keeping your anti-virus protection current, fortify your PC security by installing McAfee Personal Firewall Plus recommended against threats like W32/Sober@MM!M681 that need Internet access to spread.

    How do I find out more?

    another way to be safe is do not open your spam mails or download the attachments unless they are expected.
