While these are among the oldest virus families circulating, the authors continue to develop new variants and even innovate occassionally.

Both of these two new family members are "oldies" when it comes to malware. In the past, Sober had perhaps the most prolific spam/mass email engine created to date. I've seen inboxes get inundated with copies. Thankfully, AV and email controls are much better than in the past. Still, any new variants from either of these two worms should be on our watchlist.
