According to internet security specialist SurfControl, a new variant of the Sober virus is behind the recent German spam flooding inboxes around the world in the past few days. The onslaught of the spam engine - dubbed Sober-Q begun on Friday the 13th. The virus continued to send infected hate messages worldwide over the weekend. Sober.Q spread hate messages in German and English while infecting PCs. Although millions of people were infected and damaged, SurfControl claims their web servers has not been affected. Many security companies say that they received hundreds of thousands of e-mails generated by Sober.Q in its first day. This latest variant of Sober was uploaded to computers that were most likely infected by previous variants of Sober, meaning the virus authors may have had remote control over thousands of PCs.
