SoBig worm is... huge


— 10:07 PM on August 19, 2003

The 'net has been groaning under the load of yet another variant of an e-mail virus. This time, it's SoBig.F. Reports say this worm, in conjuction with a "good" worm that infects computers in order to patch a Windows vulnerability, is causing massive traffic on the 'net.

Personally, I've received over 500 copies of SoBig.F in the past 18 hours or so, plus a fairly large number of bounce messages and virus notifications generated by the virus spoofing my address as the sender's. Lovely.
