For the past 1 week till now, I found that internet is slow, nothing wrong with my PC hardware, and i had updated my norton virus definition. Is it due to Sobig.F ?
You misunderstand the problem. Blaster (worse than Sobig if I remember correctly - there were a handful of major viruses/worms in the past two weeks) doesn't slow YOUR connection to the internet, it slows the internet itself. It launched a denial of service attack on www.windowsupdate.com (see the bulletin there) from each computer it infected. It had a major impact on overall internet traffic and made patching the security flaw difficult. I personally had trouble updating my computers at work because of Blaster.Originally posted by Sourire
I do know (I work for norton virus removal) that sobig.f does not slow internet connection
