In response of resent attack of I-Worm.Sobig email virus, Abacre Corporation released its own antivirus called: Abacre I-Worm.Sobig Virus Remover. It periodically checks pop3 mailboxes and removes infected email messages directly from server side without downloading them. The program can be successfully used with any pop3 email clients: Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, The Bat. Note: this program does not clean already infected computers, it's only does not allow to your email clients to download infected viruses from your mailbox.

How Abacre antivirus works?

Program periodically checks remote mailbox and if it finds a virus it removes infected message. So you don't need to download more than 100KB of infected message.

What is Sobig virus? Sobig is a virus spreading in email messages.

Why cleaning the Sobig is important?

It shows very high activity: some people get about 5 infected messages a minute. Each message is about 101KB. For even having high-speed ADSL connection it's very high pressure on network. If your mailbox has limited size, for example 5MB, than in one hour it could be full. Therefore mailbox will not accept any other maybe extremely important messages from your clients, family members or friends.

Why standard anti viruses are not efficient? Standard anti viruses resides on client computers. It means that before cleaning the message, it should be downloaded on local computer. Downloading takes too long time. Therefore ideal solution would be using antivirus program on server-side. It means that your Internet Service Provider should install the anti virus program. In mean time if ISP has not yet installed anti virus, you can get a lot of viruses any way. In this case using Abacre I-Worm.Sobig Virus Remover could be only one solution.
