    W32/Sobig-F-mm is back and stronger than ever. This virus just took off this morning and is now #1 on Message Lab's threat page.

    Another trojan is fast moving too, RightU trojan. It installs a dialer program.

    And then there is the fake Blaster patch worm going around.

    Remember folks, Microsoft does NOT send you patches via email!!! :shrug:

    MicroSoft is powerless - no patch or software configuration can overcome people that insist on opening attatchments.

    :laugh: I thought it was kind of odd to get 7 identical emails from M$ about some msn messenger patch!
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Has anyone actually discovered what that actually is? It seems semi-legit to me, and only seems to hit people that use old versions of MSN or third party programs...

    Yeah... I had about 20 of the damn emails in my inbox... thing is, they carried the correct icon that Microsoft uses for their news items... plus the reply-to buttons were disabled when I read the email...
