Spam: German Email

Many users have reported receiving mass quantities of spam email messages in German. These messages are not viruses themselves, but are being sent unwittingly by computers on the Internet that are infected with the recent Sober.p & Sober.q worms. Most of these emails are arriving from off-campus sources. Computer Infrastructure Support Services (CISS) is trying to find ways to reliably block these messages, but as with all spam, it is difficult to do consistently.
