Here's an interesting side effect that Sobig.F has in store: A potentially massive Internet attack starts today. Seems that Sobig.F has a hidden, encrypted part that will "phone home" to a list of 20 servers to get instructions on what to do next. What will this phase do? Nobody really knows because the folks behind Sobig aren't talking :) Read the writeup at F-secure for more details.
