    Sad but so true. Computer Viruses are now teamed up with spamm engines and BHO type backdoors to make money. Is their some rogue affiliates and Ad whores behind this feat?

    "Several Internet worms that have besieged computers for over a week played havoc again on Wednesday, including one called Sobig.F whose aim was to turn PCs into spam machines and was believed to be the fastest growing virus ever, experts said.

    Sobig.F drops software onto infected Windows computers that open them to be used later for distributing Internet spam -- unwanted e-mails and product promotions, experts said. It also represents a new trend in converging e-mail spamming and virus software writing, they said.

    "We believe (Sobig.F) has been written by a spammer or spammers" looking for ways to get past spam filters, said Mikko Hypponen, manager of anti-virus research for Finnish security firm F-Secure. "For once, we have a clear motive for a virus -- money."

    Security experts said it was difficult to ascertain how many computers had been infected by the Sobig.F worm. Worms are viruses that spread through networks.

    Internet service America Online, however, said it blocked about 11.5 million copies while security firm MessageLabs stopped more than 1 million copies within the first 24 hours and dubbed Sobig.F the fastest growing e-mail virus ever.

    Sobig.F hit the computing world as corporations were still recovering from several worms that spread through holes in Microsoft Corp.'s Windows operating systems, including the "Blaster" worm. Also called "LovSan," it has infected and crashed hundreds of thousands of computers since last week.
