Keeping with the conspiracy theory that spammers were deprived of hosts and
use Sobig's to cultivate proxies...

Sobig.F is spreading this morning.

Uses .pif and .scr attachment extensions-block 'em.

Is not detected generically by some AV.

All major AV have samples and updates, see your vendor of choice.
