Did You vile spammers create Sobig specifically to enable more spam? If so the FBI is onto your horrendous, criminal scheme

The Sobig viruses--the first of which was created in January--are thought to be created as a moneymaker. The viruses turn every infected PC into an "open proxy," or a system that can be used to send spam. Security experts believe that the programmers of Sobig sell the list of open proxies to underground bulk e-mailers that need to send anonymous e-mail.
