Old Virus, New Plague

I got an E-Mail last night from a postmaster of a server that I did not recognize telling me that I had sent an e-mail to an e-mail address I did not know that was infected with the W32.Sobig.F@mm virus. A quick virus scan let me know that I had not been infected, but this little beastie has been making it's rounds again. It is an older virus that has been getting a lot of attention in the past two days. Symantec has upgraded the threat of the Sobig virus because literally thousands of reports have come in of infections in the last day. Read more about it here: Symantec Security Response - W32.Sobig.F@mm, including a removal tool download if you have been unfortunate enough to be infected.
