This is looking like a virus to me - second opinion anyone?

Its been going around all day - I've received 32 so far :)

Title: 'Good' worm, new bug mean double trouble

Two new threats on the Internet are creating so much traffic that some networks are slowing to a crawl, security experts say.

Title: W32.Sobig.F@mm Warning

Chris Casciano let us know that he is getting hit hard by this virus and its 70+KB payload. He also mentions the email addresses he is seeing tossed in as the spoofed sender are very much skewed towards highly technical / web oriented addresses [zd, webmonkey, uu.net, sybase, ms, netscape, etc.] so he suspects at least one of his close contacts/peers is infected (as opposed to completely random windows users who picked up his email from looking at a website with his photos). So if you're on Windows, or come in contact with a Windows, PLEASE make sure its well patched, its virus definitions are updated & its otherwise well secure.
