Sophos has today warned that the mass-mailing W32/Sobig-F worm, which has flooded computer users this week, could attempt to download a Trojan horse between 8pm and 11pm BST today.

Nice!

I feel sorry for the hackers / virus makers. They should consider redirecting their skills in some other direction.....!!

37% of the spam I receive are from companies offering security / protection products that would not be needed if not for the hackers etc.

Have hackers considered the billion dollar market they have created & have they considered whom is getting richer due to their antics?

AVG, Zone Alarm and my "Anti-Trojan" are all up to date, so fingers crossed .......
