Email Virus Havoc? Where?

Published on 22 August 2003 in , ,

Apparently there is some major virus called Sobig that’s hitting loads of servers and sending out loads of emails to people.

The virus then propogates because loads of people are stupid and open attachments despite not knowing what they are. The virus goes through the address books and sends out more emails.

Personally I don’t think I’ve had a single one at work or home and I’ve been looking for reasons… Either

  1. everyone I know is computer savey and doesn’t click on email attachments that they don’t know about.
  2. my email has been going through some very good filters.
  3. no one actually likes me and thus my email address isn’t in anyones address book.

Why do I have the feeling it’s 3?
