Folks:
 
 Once again there is a batch of viruses in distribution via email
that 
 are forging the 'from' address.
 
 Please keep in mind that, if you get a virus from someone, it's
probably 
 not being sent from them at all ... but someone else with both
the 
 apparent sender and you have corresponded with.
 
 Unfortunately, this means that it's possible for a virus to be
sent to a 
 mailing list.
 
 Midrange.com is running active virus protection (two different
virus scanners, 
 f-prot & clamav) which seems to be catching everything that has
been 
 thrown at it.
 
 Rest assured, however, that even if the virus were to get past
the virus 
 scanner ... the virus payload would be removed from the email
before it 
 gets distributed so only the text portion of the message could
possibly 
 get distributed.
 
 As always, please make sure you are running virus protection on
your 
 systems and that your virus definitions are up to date.  A
current 
 backup doesn't hurt either :)
