Sober worm back with trickier message

Thursday, 21 April 2005, 1:48 PM EST

A new version of the Sober worm is spreading rapidly around the Web, this one with a twist. Called Sober-M or Sober-N by various security companies, it uses an e-mail in poorly worded English to try to convince recipients that their e-mail is being diverted to the alleged sender.

The subject of the infected messages is "I've_got your e-mail on my_account!" The infected .zip file is commonly named "your_text.zip." There is also a German version with the subject "FwD: Ich bin's nochmal."
