Hope you guys have your antivirus programs updated
and firewalls firm.

Four emails with attachments were caught by mailwasher
and were deleted and bounced.

Also 3 new worms have been found.

PHASERS ON KILL!

You could do the world a favour and turn off the bouncing of the emails
for the moment!

SoBig.f picks a random "from" address out of the many available on the
infected computer - so any bounces you send will be likely to go to
someone not even infected with it.

"You sent me a virus"
"Who are you? and no I did not!"
"yes you did"

etc.

This is eating as much bandwidth as the worm itself at the moment!
