Any new variant of this advanced virus family is worth watching ... Just preliminary info so far:



TrendLabs has received several reports regarding this new SOBER variant that is currently spreading in Germany and the United States.  TrendLabs is working to provide a more in depth analysis of this malware. Details will be posted shortly.

This threat is proactively detected with the 4473 DAT files, or newer, as W32/Sober.gen@MM.

AVERT is currently analyzing this threat.  More details will be posted shortly.

This threat arrives in an email message with one of the following attachment names:
