Let's not get too spooked -- this is yet another annoyance
that exemplifies just how ludicrous the virus writer's
"one-upmanship" really can get, something which has been
around for quite some time.
Thanks for the heads-up, which is (in my opinion) the appropriate
response -- anything resembling panic, scare tactics, or a
"Charlie Foxtrot", would only contribute to the problem.
It seems like that has become the norm (charlie yada), and
as engineering folk, we need to be more objective.
Let's make sure we put this into the proper perspective and
not contribute to the hype. Does that sound fair? (This is merely
a general statement/question and not directed to Valdis.)
A quick heads up, if anybody hasn't heard:
At 1900GMT today, ET phones home, and picks up the next payload
of instructions. Nobody knows (yet) what they'll be, but SoBig-E
erased itself, put in a password grabber, and then installed a
mail proxy for spammer use.
This one *may* just play the theme song from Bozo the Clown
and erase itself, but I severely doubt it's gonna be that
