    W32.Sobig.E@mm worm spreads through the infected e-mail attachment. The subject and the body of the email are chosen by the W32.Sobig.E@mm worm randomly. One specific thing this infected mail contains is the sentence "Please see the attached zip file for details." So indirectly or directly this infected mail says the user to download the attachment file. Once this W32.Sobig.E@mm enters your computer system then it replicating itself and harms the user. I will suggest you to user Norton antivirus software for removing this W32.Sobig.E@mm worm from your computer system
