(KSL News) -- Mark your calendar for the next internet attack. Security experts say it will most likely happen January 5th.
That's when a variant of the "SOBER" worm is expected to unleash a wave of politically-motivated e-mail tied to the anniversary of the founding of the NAZI party.
The worm often comes as an attachment to an e-mail supposedly sent by the F-B-I or C-I-A claiming you've visited "illegal" web sites and asking you to fill out questions on the attachment.
Experts say it's too late to stop it because the worm has already secretly infected millions of computers.
