Biju G C's last words before the Sword of Azrial plunged through his
body were:
> I received mail containing W32.Sobig.F at mm virus
> I wish it is not originated from somebody at project_owners at mozdev.org

Normally, sobig randomly generates an email address, or picks one of the 
ones it has found on the machine to spoof. So it'll scan a person's 
emails, address books, and documents for email addresses, then use its 
built in STMP engine to mail copies of itself to all the addresses it 
found, and you can never really find out who it came from (you can trace 
the IP, but thats it)
