The infected mail you receive will have a spoofed 'From' address, which is
picked up randomly from the infected system. The body of the infected mail
contains English or German language contents.

The worm carries an attachment and the name of the infected attachment will
be your domain name, username or from a pre-defined list maintained by the
W32/Sober.O worm. The extension of the infected attachment will be ZIP.
