(KSL News) -- A potentially dangerous computer virus could target your computer as early as next week.

The so-called "Sober Worm" has been around for years, but this version is especially hazardous and has enough power to disrupt internet traffic.

Experts say the bug is already in thousands of machines. It's scheduled to activate on January 5th, the 87th anniversary of the Nazi party being founded. It's supposed to flood email inboxes with pro-nazi propaganda in English and in German.
