Sober worm offshoot lurks behind class photo

      As always, please NEVER open e-mails or attachments unless you are either expecting it or know who it is from. Also, use common sense. If it looks suspicious, it probably is. If for some reason a problem does occur, keep up to date antivirus software to give yourself a good chance of fighting it off. I strongly recommend Avast Home Edition.
 
 
      A new variant of the Sober e-mail worm has started spreading as an attachment that claims to be an old class photo sent by a schoolmate. But if recipients open the file, they don’t see a picture of themselves in braces. Instead, a worm tries to steal their information and then mail itself to others. Antivirus software maker Sophos said the Sober variant is now the second most commonly reported virus, accounting for approximately 10 percent of all reports in the last 12 hours.
