Sober Worm Conceals Nazi Plans

`iDefense, the cyber security intelligence provider and a VeriSign company, reports that the next planned attack of 2005’s most prolific email worm family, Sober, is scheduled to start on January 5, 2006 based on commands hard-coded within the worm.

The attack date coincides with the 87th anniversary of the founding of the Nazi party. Additionally, the attack could have a significant detrimental effect on internet traffic, as email servers are flooded with politically motivated spam emails from potentially tens of millions of e-mail addresses.’
