No virus outbreak during the EICAR 2006 Conference.

We didn’t got a fourth outbreak of a new virus this year during the EICAR conference. The release of Sober.P in Germany on the first day of the conference last year caused a lot of activity and provided another talking point as this added to a trend that seems to have emerged over recent years - Bugbear.B having been released during the 2003 EICAR conference and Sasser having appeared during the 2004 EICAR conference.
