A new variant of the Sober virus is causing problems on the internet. Machines that are infected with the Sober-P virus have downloaded a new spam engine and are sending German emails all over the internet.

The emails started appearing on Saturday and are right-wing extremist in nature. We have stopped the virus at the firewall, but the emails are still getting in.

Users should ignore and trash the messages.

Virus definitions should be dated May 16th rev 7 or better.
