The so called "Sobig" virus also known as W32/Palyh@MM is being caught by NetPoint's virus scanners in user's e-mail and is being quarantined before downloading to their PCs.


FYI In perspective, the Klez virus still remains the most caught virus (with 32) in the past 24 hours, while the new virus was stopped 27 times in the same period. Since September 2001, Klez was stopped 30,041 times, followed by SirCam at 8,967. During that same period NetPoint has stopped 52,917 viruses.
