For the last few days we've been getting flooded with hundreds of Sober.p (a.k.a. Sober.o) viruses a day. They don't infect our Linux desktops, but at 72 kilobytes each (encoded) they eat up a lot of our dial-up bandwidth and local disk storage. The nuisance is getting to be annoying.
Oh well, nothing to do but let the storm pass. There are just too many PC owners -- not to mention one notorious operating system vendor -- who don't know, or don't care, about computer security. —brad
