SoBig gets (so) BigGER

I woke up this morning to find a few dozen more SoBig bouncebacks in my mailbox. From the looks of the email’s I’ve received, the actually infected computer might belong to someone at WFSB… someone I invited to the Emmy judging!

Along with random, weird addresses (see the extended entry below), emails went to Rob Jordan (agent) and a few Meredeth and WFSB addresses. Oops.

  1. Hey, how weird…I just sent a long e-mail to everyone in my address book…and ALL of the “AOL” addressed e-mails were returned to me…does that mean my computer has this virus? (SO BIG?)…if so, how do I get rid of it?
