OMEN? Symantec has some information on the So Big virus and variations. (There is something to be said for screening email with Pine or something similarly primitive, and running the older version of Windows at home, when these things start running around. I suppose that's the reason some people brag on their Apple products. But I digress.) The intel on this worm is that it goes inactive on September 10. Or is there a follow-on, or an undiscovered surprise in the worm, to activate the next day?
