So, since the 2nd of May we've been dealing with an increasing load of Sober.L and its ilk. According to Sophos, the mail traffic from the virus accounts for over 4% of all email traffic seen currently, and accounts for roughly 80% of all the virus traffic. Looks like despite all of the previous warnings, everyone is getting caught by surprise, again.
We've seen several hundred messages forged from hesketh.com addresses to hotmail addresses, all from a single machine on the msu.edu network. This added to the ongoing outscatter from the joe job (quick: blacklist salver.info) has kept me from posting, along with a nasty flu bug and various other troubles (including a G3/900 CPU card upgrade that decided to release its magic smoke on Tuesday, leaving me with an extremely unhappy Pismo Powerbook and the old G3/400 card back in place after two and a half years and a new emergency iBook G4) have kept me from blogging. Will try to make up for the past few days over the next few days ;-)
