Sober.F is a worm without destructive effects that spreads via e-mail in a message written in English or in German, depending on the mail domain extension of the user's address.
Sober.F searches for e-mail addresses in files with several especific extensions, and then sends itself out to all the addresses it has gathered, using its own SMTP engine.
