Hi;

I'm now getting over 100 emails a day with the sobig virus attached. My latest version of Macafee AV picks them up and I delete them but it is becoming a major hassle to download my email.

I have scanned my system and searched for the characteristic files that accompany a sobig infection and my system is clean.

Is there anything I can do to stop this other than await the date (?in September) when the sobig virus will ostensibly become deactivated on infected systems?

Thanks for your reply but I've been there, done that. I already have a filter set up in my email agent (Eudora) that puts them in my "Trash" barrel. However, I have to delete these one at a time, as my antivirus program picks them up

I am hoping to find a better way. ....and I would never use Outlook Express, the ultimate security sieve from Microsoft.

Guess using my ISP's webmail site is the only way. Does anyone have the same info regarding SOBIG...that it will cease functioning in mid-aseptember?
