OT - SoBig Virus - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I'm getting barraged today with spurious e-mails that are infected with the "SoBig" virus; fortunately, the much-maligned Norton Anti-Virus is shooting them down left and right. Is anyone else experiencing this today, or did I wander into a website that did me dirty??...

    Slammed with them today.
    Over 200 so far, 100k each.
    Having run a commercial website for 6 years now, I'm in lots of address
    books, web caches, etc.
    Everytime there's a new email worm that exploits email addies on hard
    drives, I know early on :-)

    Between that and the MSBlaster, it's been quite a two weeks, worm wise.

    I did like the one version they had where the name of the person who posted the question was listed. That would give newcomers a little help in finding their post again. I wonder if Adobe is listening? :)

    I got a bunch of those dumb SoBig virus messages yesterday, but none have come in today. Whew. I was getting really tired of having all that mail and nobody wanting to talk to me!

    Yeah, it ended abruptly for me as well.
    I was doing selective download, there were so many of them, and at 100k
    each were really slowing things down. Set my emailer not to download
    anything over 50k.

    I imagine that various email server admins added filters to keep them
    from arriving and/or being sent after the first big flood.
