A new variant of the SOBIG worm is spreading fast.

Best practice to do now:

- update anti-virus scanners, both on desktops,
servers and security perimeters

- communicate safe email handling instructions to all users
(do not open unsolicited attachments, no matter
how tempting the instructions or title are)

- block incoming UDP ports 995 - 999

- block outgoing UDP ports 8998

- monitor for outgoing UDP port 123 traffic (used by NTP clients as well)
for signs of infection
This new variant is rather successful at spreading.
