Lisa has gotten the offending email containing the Sober worm fifty or sixty times in the last 36 hours.
The latest variations of the Sober worm are depressingly widespread at the moment because people are fooled by messages that appear to come from the FBI or CIA. A simple and, you’d think, obvious scam but many people are tricked into opening the attachment to the email, so there’s enough people out there who would not find it strange to have the FBI or CIA email them personally.
The messages have an infected email attachment and should be deleted, certainly not opened up. There’s no risk in reading the message in your email programs preview pane.
The Sober worm itself is nothing new but there’s been an explosion of messages generated by the worm, presumably from people being tricked by the contents of the email.
