Sober Revolutions

Zombie PCs infected with the Sober-P worm are set to reactivate on
Monday, 23 May. Sober-P posed as offers of a free ticket for next
year’s World Cup and set up backdoor access on compromised PCs,
claiming thousands of victims since its first appearance earlier this
month.

These infected machines were later used to generate a German hate-mail
spam outbreak this week. The sheer volume of this deluge illustrated
the potential for further mischief.
