Yep, was reading about it from Ziff Davis Media... Apparently it is a mutated version of the original sobig. It is a mass e-mail virus that uses its own built in SMTP engine to send itself using a fake return address picked up from the hard drive or it can read bill@microsoft.com...

Yep, I got that one.

I didn't open it, though.

I NEVER open e-mail from and address I don't know and especially if it has an attachment.

I have a website and I get mail thru the webmaster addy. Last week end I was flooded with suspicious mail.

Hey guys, just reading about a new variation to the bug bear virus this one is different in the fact that you DO NOT have to open the attachment just reading the e-mail is enough...



Bugbear takes advantage of a known vulnerability in Microsoft Corp.'s Internet Explorer (IE) and can be run automatically simply by reading the e-mail and not opening the attachment. It can also spread via other e-mail programs, but it will not be automatically run in the same way.
