or is it someone posing at them? is that company real?
Just want to know whats going on. I had another automated reply just beofre this one saying that my email will be answered shortly. The thing is that i didn't email anyone about anything like that at all!
Just scanning my drives with nortonAV2003pro & Swat it. I'll have to leave it running overnight as i've got around 200Gb of space.
No this is not a hoax did you open this email i think mabye you did, this is the "sobig.f" wait untill someone on this forum can give you the way to get the patch ect and get rid, i cant new myself, but know enough to say, it,s big wish i could help, all the best Mammak
Ooooops. The 2nd link doesn't compute. Launch Google and enter sobig.f and you'll find loads of links, including the 1 I posted that doesn't work. It's Symantec Security Reponse [email protected]val Tool
For some reason links pasted in from Symantecs site don't work. I've had the same problem. Best to direct folk to the home page (which does work) and click security response. Then choose your virus from the list or do a search. If there is a remove tool it will show.
