From Bullguard:

The return of Sober has seen it rocket to the top of the current threat list, heading the chart of the most prolific viruses during the past month, Silicon.com reports.

Sober.N—also know as Sober.O and Sober.P—displaced Zafi.D atop the 'least wanted' list provided by antivirus firm Sophos.

"Sober.N stormed to the top of the chart in early May, making it one of the biggest outbreaks so far this year. This manipulative email worm spread quickly, using social engineering tricks, such as offering free World Cup tickets, to entice recipients into opening the infected attachment," said Carole Theriault, security consultant at Sophos.

In total Sober.N accounted for 43.8 per cent of all reported viruses in May.
