SoBig.F breaks virus speed records - SoBig.F breaks virus speed records
Fri, August 22 2003 | 1:37PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Already the worm has caused an estimated $50 million of damage in the United States alone. Among its casualties: It briefly brought freight and computer traffic in Washington, D.C. to a halt, grounded Air Canada and slowed down computer systems at many major companies such as advanced technology firm Lockheed Martin. The sixth or "F" version of the SoBig infection disguises itself in e-mails which once opened scan a computer for e-mail addresses before sending scores of messages to the addresses it collected via its own inbuilt sending program. The SoBig.F outbreak, first detected Monday, began 10 days after the Blaster worm (which itself infected an estimated 500,000 users) and has already beaten other infamous viruses such as LoveBug, Klez and Kournikova in terms of spread.
