Who Wrote Sobig?
As the one year anniversary of the Anti-Virus Reward Program bounty for
Sobig approaches, we felt this was an appropriate time to publicly
release the current state of our Sobig forensic investigation.
Appropriately, the authors of this document have chosen to release it
anonymously for many reasons, some of which are:
* By releasing the information publicly, we hope to increase tips to law
enforcement concerning the Sobig authorship and spur efforts toward
apprehension of the malware author(s);
* This document shows how computer forensics can identify virus authors.
The computer forensic methods demonstrated throughout this document
have been utilized to successfully identify authors of other viruses
* Our focus is the objective analysis of Sobig. It is our contention,
position, and belief that associating this paper with any specific
company, organization, group, or individual will only serve to detract
from the investigation.
